 25 Guests Can Witness Whiskey vs. Wine Showdown at HOBNOB Brookhaven June 6

Is this a spirited case of “anything you can do, I can do better”? Find out for yourself as one of the 25 guests able to take part in a Whiskey vs. Wine tasting event at HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern in Brookhaven and make the spirit or vine call yourself. No judgment on preferences, just a fun opportunity to enjoy five courses of small plates, each paired with both a whiskey and a wine. Executive chef Wayne Rheinlander, sous chef Jake Orr and owner/event host Sean Yeremyan strategize a delectable arsenal of dishes to complement a stellar lineup of whiskeys and wines.
