The Dillard House to Feature Craft Beer Pairings Dinner to Celebrate its Centennial

Craft beer aficionados will want to celebrate at The Dillard House this summer.  It’s the perfect summertime combination:  a craft beer pairing dinner and country music.  Brew and Crew will be hosted July 22 and guests will experience a 5-course dinner, 5 beer tastings and receive a souvenir pint glass.  After the tasting dinner, guests will enjoy entertainment by 2015 GA Music Awards Country Male Artist of the Year Justin Dukes and his band.

Brewmaster Smith Mathews of Savannah, GA, founder and Managing Partner of Georgia's Southbound Brewing Company,  will share secrets on the latest/greatest trends in the craft beer craze during this tasting dinner.  He has matched five of his most popular beers with seasonally-inspired courses to complement each libation.

Mathews received his diploma in Brewing Technology from the prestigious Sielbel Institute of Technology in Chicago and the Doemens World Brewing Academy in Munich, Germany. He and Southbound beers have been featured in "Georgia Traveler" on PBS, "The Palate Magazine," "The Beer Connoisseur Magazine," "The Savannah Magazine," "Southern Brewing News," and most recently "Draft Magazine" to name a few. Mathews was the featured beer expert at the 2016 Sea Island Southern Grown Festival.

According to Louise Dillard, CEO of The Dillard House “Southbound Brewery creates some of the finest craft beers in the South and with the popularity of craft beer increasing, we think this event will appeal to our summertime travelers who love white water rafting, hiking and other outdoor activities in the north Georgia mountains.”

Justin Dukes has opened for artists such as Vince Gill, Charlie Daniels, Justin Moore, Big & Rich, A Thousand Horses, Montgomery Gentry, Craig Campbell, John Michael Montgomery, Shenandoah, David Nail and Joshua Scott Jones. He recently sold out at the world-famous Bluebird Café in Nashville, TN. Justin's unique voice is like no other in country music and his writing ability reaches all ages in the country music genre.
