Photos: SanTan Brewing beer dinner at Cork

Finally getting around to posting photos from Monday night’s SanTan Brewing dinner at Cork in Chandler. It was the first time Cork owners Robert and Danielle Morris, who host monthly winemaker dinners, have done a beer dinner.

Nearly 60 diners enjoyed a six-course dinner, which cost $65 (including gratuity), prepared by chef Brian Peterson and pastry chef Danielle.

(If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve already seen these.)
