PHILADELPHIA, PA—One of Philadelphia’s most anticipated local food and drink pairing events is pleased to announce its return to the Kimmel Center on Sunday, March 13th, 2016.  The 12th Annual Brewer’s Plate, which benefits Fair Food, celebrates by bringing together a sampling of the region’s exceptional breweries, chefs, artisans, cideries, distillers, farmers and winemakers.

It is no myth that the Philadelphia-region has an abundance of culinary artists in all shapes and sizes and a community of eager foodies in tow waiting to treat their palates to the newest creations.  Over the last twelve years, the Brewer’s Plate has become a banner event for chefs at the top of their game—and a showcase for regional farmers, some of whom have worked with Fair Food for almost two decades!

It doesn’t stop at the fork – Philadelphia has become a dream market for craft breweries, cideries, distilleries, and winemakers.  Whether they are from the city or its surrounding areas, beverage artisans clamor to join the event and reach this pivotal group of consumers who are ready to have a sip of what is fresh and local.

Now – put the freshest ingredients and ideas with a beverage that was mashed, boiled, and fermented just miles away, and you have the perfect combination of what is meant to get your taste buds dancing.  The Brewer’s Plate aims to bring together the best of the food and drink community in the Mid-Atlantic region under one roof.  Whether it is to try a new dish, or maybe a new way of thinking about how your choice of beverage can enhance the flavors of your food, this event is fit for all appetites.  Year after year, the Brewer’s Plate is an opportunity to enjoy the ever-changing local food and drink scene.

Guests can choose between General Admission or VIP tickets – and those who act fast will be rewarded with lower-priced tickets.  As a VIP ticket holder for 2016, you will have a full hour prior to General Admission with access to all the participants, plus a special Brewer’s Plate VIP glass.
