On Friday October 12th, The Promise Culinary School, Suydam Farms, and the PALE ALES teamed up for a Farm to Table evening of local brew and seasonal foods to benefit Elijah’s Promise. Elijah’s Promise began as a volunteer New Brunswick soup kitchen, and has evolved into a culinary school and job creation enterprise that helps to rebuild lives by not simply providing food. Suydam Farms has been growing produce, livestock, and plants for 13 generations, not to mention helping out us PALE ALES by giving us a great meeting backdrop twice a year. The result of this epic team? Chef prepared local foods, paired with homebrew or local brew (Harvest Moon, Triumph). Many compliments were passed to both brewers and chefs alike! To say the event was a success is understatement; a sold out crowd enjoyed the best of both worlds, all for the benefit of a local charity.
A big thanks to the following: The entire Suydam family, all of Elijah’s Promise, and the PALE ALES that participated: Andy, Ben, Chuck, Dave, Kevin, Laurie, Paul, and Steve.
Due to the success of the event, they are really looking forward to a repeat in 2013!
