He said beer, she said wine (Snowdown)

Ska Brewing will host a beer, wine and cheese tasting at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 31, at Ska HQ, 225 Girard St. in Bodo.

Wine expert Leah Deane and Dave Thibodeau, president of Ska nation, will pair five fine cheeses from Guido's Italian Market with five beers of Dave's choosing (not necessarily Ska beers) and five wines of Leah's choosing. Attendees will vote on which pairing was best.

Both Leah and Dave will speak about pairing wines and beers with food. Only 30 tickets will be sold and all proceeds will go back to Snowdown. Tickets are $15 each. For reservations, call Holly at (970) 247-5792, or email President Thibodeau at

The tasting will be held alongside the Osiris Homebrew Competition, a preliminary competition for the Great American Beer Festival Pro/Am event. The winner of the local competition will have their recipe brewed in a local series batch.
