 Beer and Sushi Pairing

We're kicking off spring,  with 2 beer and sushi pairings in April. The first will be held at REO Town Pub on  Monday, April 20th at 7PM and will include 5 of New Holland Brewing Co. hand-crafted brews paired up with delectable sushi from Xiao China Grill & Lounge.
The second pairing will be held on Monday, April 27th at Front 43 Neighborhood Pub and will be featuring beers from Brewery Vivant paired with the sushi made next door at Xiao China Grill & Lounge.

Both events are casual, come-as-you-are affairs that will be done in the style of traditional beer dinners. Included in the ticket is 5 - 4oz to 6oz beers paired with sushi. As these tend to sell out quickly, we encourage you to purchase tickets ahead of time online from our website where specific times and details are available.
