Lowes Foods Demo Tent

 

 

“Congrats!  You’ve Been Admitted to the Lowes Foods Demo Tent”

 

For decades it seems, the fine art of wine & beer appreciation and selecting the proper wine or beer to go with certain foods left many beginners a tad intimidated.

 

The Spirits of Summer festival wants to forever put aside those feelings of wine & brew incompetence with an entertaining and educational opportunity perfect for all levels of wine & beer lovers.  De-mystifying the wonderful world of wine & beer, and clarifying the art of food and wine & beer pairings that bring out the best in our North Carolina wines and North Carolina Breweries is the mission of “Lowes Foods Demo Tent” back by popular demand at this year’s festival.

 

Five unique presentations will be held  throughout the day.  The knowledgeable local chefs from some of the best restaurants and winemakers and brewmakers from NC will help unravel the mysteries of pairing.

 

At this tent, there are no wrong questions. Be sure you don’t skip these classes….plan to attend at least one during your day at Spirits of Summer!
