When you mix the culinary innovation of American Grocery with the wizardry of Stone Brewing and place it in a majestic setting such as Greenbrier Farms, you know something magical is going to happen. That’s what we have coming to the upstate on November 19.
I had the pleasure of making my first trip to Greenbrier Farms in Easley, SC last weekend for the wedding of my friends Nathaniel and Eliza. It’s a beautiful place amid the rolling hills, just 20 minutes from downtown Greenville, but far enough out to feel like I was in the countryside. The venue is awesome for a huge party or an intimate dinner, and we were treated to a gorgeous sunset.
It only makes sense, then, to have a farm-to-table dinner at an actual farm. Can’t get much fresher than that. Chef Joe Clark from American Grocery (my favorite restaurant in Greenville) is coming out to cook up something good. Chef Joe brings the thunder with creative dishes and a menu that constantly changes, so there’s always a reason to go back.
To top it all off, Scott Sheridan and Greg Koch (yes, that Greg Koch) from Stone will be there. I’ve been told Greg is bringing with him some Stone creations that have not yet hit the shelves. (I hope this isn’t like the time I heard the rumor that Dave Matthews was playing a surprise show at Captain Harry’s in Charleston back when I was in college.)
Tickets are $75 each. I’ve purchased mine, happy birthday to me! Nicole and I will likely bring our tent and camp out by the pond. I don’t want to over-hype the event, but this can’t not be amazing.
