For 10 beer and chocolate pairings, tickets are on sale online here for $35 until 5PM on February 7th. Must be 21 years old or older to participate and designated driver tickets are available online as well for a discounted $20.
Festivities begin at 1PM of February 8th and wrap up at 5PM. Leaving plenty of time for a romantic dinner at one of the Historic District's many restaurants.
