Be Local Northern Colorado announced today the first annual Bounty & Brews Farm Dinner, an event that pairs six local breweries with seven local chefs, all collaborating to create a farm-to-table beer dinner extraordinaire.
Food will be served farm to table fashion at common tables, decorated elegantly with seasonal plants and produce. This event will be hosted at Fort Collins Nursery, 2121 East Mulberry, on Oct. 27 from 5 to 10 p.m.
The dinner is an opportunity for the community to dine together and raise our glasses to local producers. Bounty & Brews is the current premiere fundraiser for Be Local Northern Colorado and their farm and food program and will help them continue to serve their mission to cultivate a living economy of independent, uniquely local businesses and farms through community advocacy, consumer education and business promotion.
