What a great turnout for the 1st Annual Bites at the Beach. The event was sponsored by Stella Artois and the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce with a portion of the proceeds going towards the Surfrider Foundation. Beer and food pairing = a very happy palate. Each booth featured a dish that was either savory or sweet along with a craftbrew that would compliment the taste of the bite. Their were two panels in the afternoon hosted by Food Network star Adam Gertler. The panels included food experts, chefs and brewers that answered questions about the industry and their craft.
The Manhattan Beach Studios backlot was a perfect setting for this event. I’m gonna get craftsy and make a neckholder for my beer glass and napkins so both hands are free to sample more food at next years event.
