Bull City Food and Beer Experience Sunday March 9th at DPAC 4pm


Three local partners collaborate to create a true Bull City Experience! DPAC, Sam's Quik Shop, together with Tyler's Restaurant & Taproom founded the Bull City Food & Beer Experience to educate and stimulate your palate and mind through the pairing of local food showcasing 30 Durham restaurants and unbelievable beer from 30 premier craft / import breweries.

In addition to the food & beer pairings, guests will be able to enjoy an onstage experience featuring 20 Cask-Condition beers from breweries across the country, a sampling of Local Food Artisans brought to you by the Durham Farmer's Market and music by MIPSO.

This year's event will also feature a North Carolina Craft Beer Panel featuring Oscar Wong of Highland Brewery Co., Jamie Bartholomaus of Foothills Brewing, Sean Lily Wilson of Durham's own Fullsteam Brewery, Robert Poitras of Carolina Brewery and Ben Woodward of Haw River F


This event will help raise money for the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association. The mission of the Ellerbee Creek Watershed Association is to:

• Enable a living creek - a healthy stream in which an appropriately diverse group of native fish and invertebrate species thrive.

• Create a network of preserves and trails along which people can hike, bike, and walk from the Ellerbe Creek headwaters to Falls Lake.

• Partner with the City and other groups that seek to move Durham to become a regional model for proactive urban stormwater management.

Help adults, and especially kids, have the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate being outdoors in a learning and safe environment.armhouse Ales.
