Exotic Chili Pepper Cuisine and Beer Pairing with Charlie Papazian

Host Charlie Papazian has always had a love affair with great beer and chili pepper-infused food. He brews beer at home and grows a wide variety of chili peppers in his garden. Charlie and his family have pursued the love of both for many years, both at home and abroad. In July 2020 he is introducing a brand-new experience that features chili pepper-infused food matched with harmonious craft beer styles.

Charlie says, "Diversity is the spice of life and the fireworks are not going to stop after the 4th of July at Whitehead Light Station. We'll discuss and consider craft beer styles and chili pepper-infused cuisine from India, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Thailand, China, Ethiopia, Morocco, Indonesia, Korea, USA, and more.

"From mild and warm to devilishly fiery, we'll explore both ends of the Scoville Scale. We'll embrace the friendly warmth and fiery bursts of our common appreciation of food and beer as we transit breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts and snacks."

Join us for this inaugural beer and food experience. Come to enjoy great craft beer and great food and experience island and coastal Maine like never before.

Course limited to 10 individuals.
