NEW CLASS! Date Night Lock 27 Brewery Tasting & Tapas

Lock 27 is coming down from Dayton to give us the low down on their beer. Our chef is going to teach you how cook tapas and how to pair the right beer with the right food, to create a better eating and drinking experience. If you're a beer enthusiast, this class is for you.

"Authentically different. Not just for the sake of different, but for the sake of creating something extraordinary."
– Steve Barnhart, Lock 27 Founder

In this class, you'll learn about and taste four of Lock 27's house beers. For each beer, we'll discuss the different flavors we can taste, and how/why we would pair them with certain foods, then we'll cook a dish to enjoy along side that beer. 

  • Lock Tender Golden Ale - This is a beer for everyone. Refreshingly light and moderately malty with very little bitterness.
    • Food Pairing: Tapas 
  • Mouth Breather IPA - This Midwest style IPA combines the citrus hops of the West Coast and the earthy malt backbone of the East Coast.  
    • Food Pairing: Tapas
  • Spillway Pale Ale - Brewed with Belma hops, but lighter in body with tropical fruityness and a malty foundation, that keeps it less bitter.
    • Food Pairing: Tapas

Chef Instructor: Samantha Wickham

Chef Sam is a Dayton, Ohio native. She graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York with a degree in Culinary Arts, and got her experience on the line in restaurants in New York and Washington D.C.  While working at Chef Dan Barber’s Blue Hill Restaurant, she fell for the farm to table concept and eventually for the lifestyle and vocation of farming. Sam has now been farming for 9 years with her husband Rich, who together own and run Foxhole Farm in Brookville, Ohio (along with their little girl Marion). They feed the Dayton community via Oakwood and Centerville farmers markets, Dorothy Lane Market, and various restaurants.  Sam also offers private chef services via her second business, Farmer to Table. Her culinary specialties include farm-to-table cooking, and Spanish, Italian, and French cuisine.  Teaching others how to cook is one of Sam’s favorite outlets.
