Check out the L&N Wine Bar & Bistro's Local Microbrew Dinner on Monday Aug. 8 at 7:00 p.m.

I’ve copied the following post by Robin Garr from his Louisville Restaurants Forum, which quite simply is the only place to go while on-line for comprehensive discussions of dining out in this area.

The topic is a “local microbrew” beer dinner at L & N Wine Bar this coming Monday night. I’d have written something myself, but I was either too busy, too lazy, or would rather give Robin a plug, anyway.


I know we've been talking a lot about L&N Wine Bar's upcoming Beer Dinner on the forum, but it just occurred to me that I've neglected to post the specifics, including the course and beer lineup, time and reservation info. If you haven't already signed on (and it's going to be a great one), here are the particulars - thanks to Len for filling me in.
