If you're looking for a night of beer, barbecue and bluegrass, Loews Ventana Canyon Resort is ready to oblige with a special cookout event. Casks and Cooks will team up chefs Ken Harvey, Jose Salas and Mike Behan with brewers from Dragoon, Ten Fifty-Five and Pueblo Vida to offer smoky, meaty eats paired with local brews.
With grilled-to-order offerings like IPA-brined baby back ribs grilled on mesquite and an all beef Sonoran dog wrapped in jalapeno-crusted bacon, the menu will offer up some spicy treats in an open air cookout setting. Along with pairing beer with the dishes, the breweries will also be releasing a special collaborative brew called the Blanche de Ventana. The beer, which is a Leuven Wit, utilizes coriander blossoms and cumquats picked at the resort.
The Casks and Cooks cookout event will take over the Coyote Corral with food, brews and live bluegrass performances at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort (7000 N. Resort Drive) on Saturday, June 13. The 21 and over dinner runs from 6 until 9 p.m. Tickets are $55 and can be reserved by calling 615-5496.
