The Venue - The Carter Payne is one of the true jewels of downtown Colorado Springs. Built in 1897, with land donated by General Palmer, this building was originally constructed as the Carter-Payne Chapel, an African Methodist Episcopal church. It has had many different concepts over the years, but it was always intended to be a community gathering place, for celebrating, meeting neighbors, and telling stories of the day. Local Relic, one of the most unique Brewery Concepts in Colorado Springs, and tenant of the Carter Payne, carries on the strong tradition of community in this building every day. Partnering with Immerse Cuisine, they bring people together over beer and food in this wonderful setting. We couldn't have asked for a better team or location to host A Grazing Life's first dinner of the year!
The Beer - The Local Relic wants change the way you think about what local craft beer can be. They set out to make intentionally esoteric beers that will knock your socks off every time. There is no "meh" beer. They create over 200 different brews every year, and each one offers an experience. Local Relic is also out to change the way people think about community, and offer their space at the Carter Payne to anyone as like-minded as them. They are a Social Enterprise that Colorado Springs should be proud to have, and we are beyond excited to partner with them for this event.
Local Relic will be pairing 5 different beers over 7 courses. They will be crafting brews special for this event, and utilizing locally sourced ingredients as much as possible.
The Food - Chef Brent Beavers of Immerse Cuisine will be letting his imagination run wild for a this 7 Course Dining Experience.
