Beer Vs. Wine: A Six-Course Life's Kitchen Showdown


In this showdown, everyone’s a winner. Life’s Kitchen chefs are waging a battle to the boozy death on Friday, Aug. 26, to determine which pairs better with grub: beer or wine.

And here’s the best part—you get to be the judge. For $40 per person, you’ll receive six courses, each paired with a different wine and beer. Chef Maggie Kiefer will be matching the vinos and Chef Ryan Hembree will be picking the suds. Though you can peep the menu below, both Hembree and Kiefer are keeping their hooch choices close to their chefs’ coats.

You have until Thursday, Aug. 25, at 5 p.m. to purchase your ticket. For reservations, call Erin King at 208-331-0199.
