Dover, DE – Fordham & Dominion Brewing will be holding their first ever Cheesetoberfest at the brewery on October 5, 2013, from 2 to 5pm.
Cheestoberfest is an all-out, no holds barred, grilled cheese competition, being held at Fordham & Dominion Brewing, that features 20 Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania restaurants, including: 33 West, Restaurant 55, McGlynn’s, Cowboy Up, Ulysses, Delaware Distilling Company, Pickled Pig Pub, Frankfurt Bakery, Fromage Chesese Boutique, Rams Head Shore House and more. Additionally, any attendee who thinks they make the best sandwich ever is invited to enter the competition as an Amateur Grilled Cheeseologsist.
In keeping with the overall general cheesiness of the event, the Philadelphia German Brass Band will provide the entertainment and John Holl will be signing copies of his newly released American Craft Beer Cookbook. Brewery staff and volunteers will be pouring Dominion’s award-winning Octoberfest and Oak Barrel Stout, along with Fordham Spiced Harvest Ale, Rams Head IPA, Copperhead Ale, and Helles Lager.
Seating is limited to 400 and the $30 admission to the event includes three 15oz beers, grilled cheese sandwiches, and a commemorative stein. Tickets can be purchased at the brewery or online at cheesetoberfest.com.
Jim Lutz, President and CEO of Fordham & Dominion, said, “Cheesetoberfest was born from two things: our passion for beer and our love of grilled cheese sandwiches. We cannot wait to share these two things, and some good old fashioned oompah music, with everyone who joins us on October 5th.”
Based on shared values and a common philosophy of quality brewing, Fordham Brewing & Dominion Brewing joined forces in 2007 and consolidated operations in 2009. The First State is now home to the Fordham & Dominion Brewing Co., where beer lovers from near and far are able to stop by, get to know us, and enjoy our handcrafted beer and soda. Our roots run deep throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and we remain dedicated to our craft. Throughout our history, we have always believed in two things: the beer we make and the people who drink it.
