Golf and Beer - The Perfect Pairing Awaits

(WILLIAMSBURG, Va.) – Following its sold-out April 18 debut, Beers in the ’Burg returns to Chowning’s Tavern Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 23, with the taste of 10 selections from Devils Backbone Brewing Company.

Beers in the ’Burg takes place from 4-7 p.m. in the arbor garden behind the alehouse. Tickets for the event are $25. Light fare to accompany the beer tasting is available for purchase. The lively sounds of traditional Celtic music performed by local favorite Poisoned Dwarf add to the festivities.

What better way to lead into a beer tasting than to take the challenge of a round of golf at Golden Horseshoe? The classic Gold Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., has been voted among the country’s finest courses ever since it first opened more than 50 years ago. The adjacent Green Course, designed by his son Rees Jones 25 years ago, represent the first father-son layout in the country. Jones Senior also designed the popular executive-length Spotswood Course.

Additional Beers in the ’Burg tastings are scheduled for June 20 (Evolution Craft Brewing), Aug. 8 (Smartmouth Brewing Company) and Sept. 19 (St. George Brewing Company). Tickets are available online at ColonialWilliamsburg.com, at all Colonial Williamsburg ticket locations or by calling 855-296-6627.
