Saint Louis Art Museum Beer & Chocolate Event
Beer + Chocolate = Food of the Gods
The Saint Louis Art Museum is bringing together brewmasters from Schlafly Beer and chocolatiers from Kakao Chocolate for Beer + Chocolate = Food of the Gods, a special event celebrating the Museum’s spring exhibition Fiery Pool: The Maya and the Mythic Sea.
The ancient Maya pioneered techniques for creating two of life’s finest things: beer and chocolate. On March 31, the Museum’s galleries will come alive with festive hors d’oeuvres, wine and live music. Brewmasters from Schlafly Beer and chocolatiers from Kakao Chocolate will lead tastings of different beers and chocolates that reflect the Maya tradition.
In addition, Matthew Robb, assistant curator of ancient American and Native American art, and Museum docents will lead tours of the exhibition throughout the evening.
Tickets are $60 for Museum Members and $75 for non-Members. Ages 21 and up only. The event is March 31 from 6:30 pm to 9 pm at the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call 314.655.5381 or visit www.slam.org/events.
