EXPERIENCE AZ | 14 Sep
LON’s Last Drop, Hermosa Inn’s casual cowboy-chic bar and grill, known for its hand-crafted cocktails and expansive menu and outdoor patio, will host a dinner series featuring several Arizona originals: Fate Brewing Company, Del Bac Whiskey, AZ Distilling Co., plus Azuñia Tequila, a premium handcrafted tequila made of 100% pure Weber Blue Agave grown on the family-owned farm in Jalisco valley.
The first dinner pairs Fate Brewing Company’s small-batch beers with LON’s Executive Chef Jeremy Pacheco’s globally-inspired Arizona cuisine on October 30th and celebrates their collaboration with the introduction of LON’s Peach Wheat, produced from more than 300 pounds of locally grown peaches from Pinnacle Farms; a Citrus Session IPA and a stout barrel-aged in LON’s Last Drop’s private Del Bac whiskey barrel.
The three-course dinner with beer pairings is $79 per person (includes tax and gratuity) and begins at 6 pm with passed hors d’oeuvres on the patio.
