Now in its 5th year, Bounty and Brews is Fort Collins’ premiere community dining event taking place on October 15. Presented by Fortified Collaborations, this event celebrates the culmination of a bountiful harvest season. Guests will enjoy six courses prepared by some of Fort Collins’ finest chefs and the courses will be paired with beers from local breweries. Taking place in and around the greenhouse at Bath Nursery, this annual tradition is bound to be a unique and hearty experience for all. Kicking off the dinner will be passed apps from Café Vino paired with Odell Brewing Company. Following this course, guests will be seated for a seasonal salad made by Tasty Harmony and paired with a Pateros Creek brew. The dinner continues with a third course by Restaurant 415 paired with Horse and Dragon Brewery. Fish Restaurant will prepare the fourth course paired with New Belgium Brewery. Music City Hot Chicken will present the fifth course entree paired with Black Bottle Brewery. The final course will be a sweet dessert pairing created by Fort Collins Brewery and Modern Tavern. The evening will feature live music as well as an abundant silent auction. The silent auction will offer the best of Fort Collins’ experiences including food, drink, adventure and art. All proceeds from the silent auction and ticket sales will benefit The Growing Project.
