The dog days are here and summer produce is abundant - time again for Middleton Place Restaurant and Holy City Brewing to host the 3rd Annual Hot Nights & Holy City Beer Dinner. In contrast to the January Braise & Brew Dinner partnership, with its braised meat and dark winter beer pairings, Hot Nights & Holy City offers lighter fare with summer seasonal brews served “picnic style” on the Greensward lawn.

Executive Chef Brandon Buck has reached out to St. Jude Farms for fresh-caught seafood, Ashley Farms for poultry, the on-site Middleton Place Organic Farm and regional farmers for their freshest and finest to create his summer dinner. The evening will begin with Holy City’s “Dorchester Light”, an American Lager brewed with Carolina Gold Rice, followed by four savory courses and will end with a selection of summer-time desserts.

Local musical genius Graham Whorley will provide the evening’s soundtrack. Read more about the event and see menu here >>
