"We have been doing beer dinners with local breweries for over a year now. We began doing monthly dinners with the idea of bringing a different dining experience to Dayton. We hadn't heard a lot about beer dinners in the area and thought it could be a great way to get Dewberry 1850 out there. It started pretty soft with only two people attending our first dinner to now nearly selling out each time," said Devin Duncan, Director of Food and Beverage for the Dayton Marriott at the University of Dayton. "We have featured nearly all breweries, some more than once, but we plan to partner with every brewery at one time. In 2019 we have switched from doing monthly beer dinners to doing them every other month."

"Chef Timothy Skiber and myself had been talking for some time about what we can do to take our beer dinners to the next level and what can we do next to possibly change the format. We have always dreamed of working closely with Warped Wing and their team. So we put our idea on paper and went and presented it to them... They loved the idea," said Duncan. "We have 70 seats for the March dinner available for sale now at $55 per person. The dinner will begin at 6 p.m. on location at Warped Wing. We will serve family style, with a few surprises."
