The seasonal beer dinners at Ray’s Cafe have become fairly legendary. The food is top-notch, the price is very reasonable for what you get, and they rotate quite a few great breweries into their dinners. The next dinner has been announced for April 24, and you will want to make a reservation ASAP if you are interested in attending. It will sell out sooner rather than later.

Brewers and reps from around five different breweries are on hand for each dinner, and they each take their turn coming over to your table to explain the beers and talk about the pairings. It’s a great way to meet and talk to some of the best breweries around, as well as some of the newest.

This dinner will feature beers from Georgetown Brewing, Chuckanut Brewery, Two Beers Brewing, Black Raven Brewing and Hilliard’s Beer.
