Saving Today's Youth Through Tomorrow's Hangovers. Drink Responsibly, Paddle Madly

Best of Backwash, November 12th!

September 8, 2015 |

For one night only, we’re pairing the area’s best beers with a great meal and a side dish of some of the world’s most famous cars. It’s the second “Best of Backwash,” an entertaining and tasteful fundraiser for Project GO.

In April 2015, Backwash crowned the region’s best home brewers. On November 12th,  these brewers will put forth their best batch, each paired with a culinary creation by the Silver Peak’s Dave Silverman. In addition to the great food and beer, we’ll have wine for our non beer-drinking guests, and of course a no-host bar.

Project GO. Connecting challenged youth. With the outdoors. For the betterment of both.

And plans for Backwash 2016 are already fermenting!
