Cultivate Kansas City is holding a different kind of beer dinner. The local non-profit is hosting a KC Pils Cookoff + Potluck on Wednesday, June 18, at its Gibbs Farm Road (4223 Gibbs Road, Kansas City, Kansas). The dinner celebrates Cultivate KC’s selection as one of three charities (Midwest Foster Care And Adoption Association and Truman Library Institute are the other two) that will split 10 percent of the revenues from the local sales of the Boulevard Brewing Co.’s KC Pils between April 1 and June 30 (part of the brewery’s “10% for KC,” program).
“Cultivate Kansas City is all about bringing the Kansas City community together to celebrate locally grown food. Our partnership with Boulevard Brewing Company’s 10% for KC program adds another fun element – hometown beer,” says Ami Freeberg, the Communications & Outreach Coordinator for Cultivate KC, “The Cultivate KC Pils Cook-off + Potluck brings together food and beer lovers to enjoy a meal together and to show off their culinary creativity.”
The potluck starts at 6:30 p.m. Eaters can simply bring something edible to share. Those who want to participate in the cookoff should find a way to incorporate KC Pils and local produce into their dish and bring the recipe. You’ll also need enough for five samples, which will be judged by The Farmhouse’s Michael Foust, Harvest’s Renee Kelly and Boulevard cellarman Alex Rodriguez. Freeberg is still finalizing the prizes for the best dishes, but beer and vegetables will be among the items given to the victors. Diners are asked to RSVP if they plan to eat and/or submit a dish.[Image via Cultivate KC]
