Local Matters’ Local Foods Week is a series of events in celebration of Ohio-grown foods. This year’s LFW is scheduled for September 30-October 8 and will feature a variety of events from a “Grilled Cheese Throwdown” on Saturday to a “Harvest Ball” on Friday.
Drink Up Columbus and House Wine have teamed up to offer a Local Drinks tasting as part of Local Foods Week on Thursday, October 6 from 6-9pm. We will have Matthew Barbee from Rockmill Brewery, Eric Allen from Brothers Drake Meadery and Joel Benedict from Firelands and Ferrante on-site to serve and discuss their products. In addition, we’ll be tapping Columbus Brewing Company’s October Hop Odyssey release (if it’s ready – it’s scheduled to be released this date, but who knows. If it’s not, we’ll have some other brews from CBC to sip.) The Olive Orchard will also be serving up locally-crafted olive oil at the event.
RSVP on Facebook to join your fellow local alcohol enthusiasts for a fun evening. Admission is $15 and includes one tasting of each local product. House Wine is located at 644 N. High Street in Worthington.
