Greenwood Brewing's 2022 NYE Beer Pairing Dinner

Dec. 31

Join Greenwood on December 31st for Greenwood Brewing’s first-ever beer dinner featuring the lovely Chef Caila Byrd with Pig + The Peanut and a delectable “La Suerte” Pairing Dinner. The “La Suerte” Pairing Menu was inspired by the New Year traditions, foods, native ingredients and indigenous people of the bountiful Sonoran Desert. Though many of the region’s most popular dishes have been the result of oppression, they have become an invaluable oral history of a people who exist today, despite cruelty – symbolic of perseverance, resilience, and resolve. New Year’s Eve celebrates those very traits, wishes for prosperity and most importantly, good luck in the New Year.  A now Mexican tradition known as Las Doce Uvas de la Suerte does just that – as the clock strikes midnight, and for each bell strike after, one grape is eaten (12 in total) by the participants – for each grape consumed, one for each month of the year, a wish is granted.

Greenwood Brewing
922 N. 5th St., Phoenix
