Brewer's Plate is This Weekend!

The 11th Annual Brewer's Plate returns to the Kimmel Center this Sunday, March 8th. Surprisingly, there are still some tickets available, so you should definitely go. The event will take place on all three floors of the Kimmel Center starting at 6:30 PM.

This local food and drink extravaganza benefits Fair Food, which is a great organization that anyone who gives even half a shit about food can get behind. Fair Food works to bring "healthy local food to the marketplace and promoting a humane, sustainable agriculture system for the region." In this day and age, we need them more than ever.

So what better way to support a great organization than to eat a bunch of food and get drunk? And there will be no shortage of food or booze. More great details, ticket info and the ridiculous list of participants after the jump.

So, now that you're hungry and thirsty after reading that list, here's how you can get in on the party. There are still tickets available, and depending on how fast you act, it'll run you either $69 or $79. There are still some $69 tickets left, and when they sell out, the rest will go for $79. This event WILL SELL OUT, so get your ass to the website and buy your tickets, you lazy bastards.

One thing I am super excited about is the exclusive opportunity to sample Bon Vivant, a collaboration beer from Victory Brewing Company and Michigan's Brewery Vivant. It's described as a saison-style ale with medium to light body and intriguing light spice derived from a unique grist of barley, wheat, rye and Belgian yeast fermentation - a touch from Brewery Vivant's already outstanding lineup of French and Belgian-inspired beers. The Michigan brewery is also bringing a few other beers for sampling on this, their first visit to Philadelphia. So, if you're a snooty Drunk Bitch like me who likes to try everything first, this is for you.

Basically, this is an event that will be talked about for a long time. We are incredibly excited about it and we hope to see you all there!

Stay drunk, bitches!
