/

Darwin Brewing Cigar City beer dinnerSarasota brewpub Darwin's on 4th (1525 4th St.) is hosting a beer dinner with probably the most famous craft brewery in Florida.

On May 7 at 7 p.m. the restaurant will put on a dinner featuring beers from Cigar City Brewing. (The previous dinners had brews from Florida Beer Co., Seventh Sun, Saint Somewhere and Green Bench Brewing.)

Previous beer dinners have featured four courses paired with four beers for $40. This time the dinner will feature five beers from the Tampa brewery paired with five courses from the Peruvian restaurant, which also brews its own award-winning beers.
