13 Celsius, 3000 Caroline, will be welcoming Markus Hubert, 10th generation winemaker and owner of Hubert Vineyards, on Monday, February 23 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.. Hubert will be pouring his wines, sharing his family history of winemaking, and enlightening guests on the process of making wine in the smallest and almost unheard of region in lower Austria: Traisental Valley. These wines are extremely small in terms of production, as esoteric as they get, and just plain hard to find. No reservations are needed. Just stop by and join the fun.
Join Saint Arnold and Whole Foods Market Houston in raising a glass to support Whole Planet Foundation, an organization that supports microentrepreneurs in 61 different countries around the world. On Thursday, February 26 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saint Arnold Brewery, 2000 Lyons, will be hosting a "Pints for the Planet" tasting featuring six international eats paired with beer. Tickets are $30 and include the tasting plus a commemorative Saint Arnold pint glass.
On Thursday, February 26 at 7 p.m., join Karbach Brewng Co. and Liberty Station in kicking off the BBQ Cookoff with a Double Dry Hopped Rodeo Clown Cask. Head to Liberty Station, 2101 Washington, to partake in the deliciousness. Just be sure to get there as soon as you can, at this cask will go quickly!
Urban Eats, 1010 Wagner, will be throwing a reception for abstract artist Cheryl Burgess, whose artwork brings an amazing energy into the eatery, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 28. Burgess' show closes on March 31. Visit feasturbaneats.com or call 832-834-4417 for more information.
For the first time, Saint Arnold founder Brock Wagner and Underbelly chef Chris Shepherd are collaborating on a beer dinner at Underbelly, 1100 Westheimer, on Wednesday, March 11 at 7 p.m. With six inspiring courses, seven rare beers from the Saint Arnold Bishop's Barrel and Divine Reserve series, and conversation with Brock and Shepherd, this dinner is sure to be epic. Only 36 seats are available, and they will be auctioned off with the proceeds donated to charity (The Hay Merchant's neighbor Legacy Community Health Services). Head to Hay Merchant, 1100 Westheimer, now through through Sunday, March 1 to make your bids in person. Bids for two seats (they will not be auctioned off singly) start at $160 and the 18 highest bidders will receive two seats to the dinner.
