The Art of Pairing at Bauer Wine and Spirits
Apr 28 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Join Bauer Wine and Spirits for the Art of Pairing

On Saturday, April 28, Bauer Wine and Spirits will be hosting the Art of Pairing from 4:30-6:30 P.M.

 Art is all around us, it just depends on what inspires you. What makes your mouth water on a cold bomb cyclone day in Boston might not be appealing at all on a hot July Sunday on the Cape. Just as weather impacts your appreciation of a meal, your choice of beverage can take a meal from good to great, or even from great to extraordinary. The Art of Pairing is an educational piece where you can learn the key to a successful meal–the passport for a beautiful harmonious marriage between food and drink. We will be serving Tenure Peach Fizz with smokey pulled pork sliders, Garden Punch- a Rosemary Rhubarb Lemonade, with cornbread, and a Coldbrew martini served with Pecan Pie!
