Fish + Foraging Easter Brunch April 16th!

Fish + Foraging Easter Brunch | April 16, 12 – 3 PM | Fair Game Bev Co, Pittsboro

Join us at the Fair Game Beverage Plant in lovely Pittsboro, NC for a very special one-off Easter Brunch with the highly anticipated local seafood restaurant Postal Fish Co.  We will be crafting unique wild cocktails with Fair Game Beverage spirits to pair with the meal highlighting spring flavors by Postal Fish Co.
We’ll gather together at the Plant for an afternoon outdoors with cocktails, foraging, fresh local seafood and a celebration of the Spring season. Proceeds from the brunch will benefit Abundance NC’s work promoting local food and sustainability right here in Chatham County.
We will begin at noon with a cocktail hour that includes a short foraging walk and discussion, where you will help gather fresh wild greens and flowers for the salad. The meal begins at 1pm, family style, with Chefs James Clark and Bill Hartley preparing an incredible feast that portends downtown Pittsboro’s first sustainable seafood restaurant opening later in 2017, with desserts prepared by pastry chef Marcey Clark.
Fair Game Beverage and Piedmont Picnic Project will collaborate on three seasonally inspired cocktails featuring the wine and spirits crafted right next door.

This is a limited seating event, so grab your tickets early!
