Want to get away for a weekend on a sailboat but not forget the beer? The Schooner Zodiac, the Bellingham-based tall ship, is announcing a beer pairing dinner sail in partnership with Boundary Bay Brewery. The “Ales n’ Sails” dinner cruise will take place from 6 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 18th. The Zodiac docks at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal in the historic Fairhaven district.
This 3-hour sail includes four dishes served from the ship’s galley by the Zodiac’s professional chef. The courses are paired with four Boundary Bay beers specially selected by Certified Cicerone brewer Bryan Krueger. Bryan will discuss how each beer and course pairing complements each other. Prior to enjoying the dinner and brews, passengers will be encouraged to assist the crew in raising and maneuvering the ship’s sails. This cruise is part of a series of beer related sailings in 2016 including a 3-day San Juan Islands Brewery Tour in July and other evening sails featuring local breweries. Another beer pairing dinner sail will take place with Chuckanut Brewery on June 30thand a special Bellingham Beer Week event will be held with Aslan Brewing on September 15th.
