If you've been one of the few hundred waiting in line on Saturdays this past summer at Revelry Brewing for a taste of John Lewis' barbecue, you know it's well worth the wait. Ready to dine on five courses from the famed pit-master? Palmetto Brewing Company has your pork fix, launching its Food & Friends Pop-Up Dinner Series with Lewis before he debuts his brick-and-mortar spot on Huger Street later this year.



On Sunday, October 11, pitmaster John Lewis (of Austin’s La Barbecue ) will present his signature Central Texas style barbecue at Palmetto Brewing Company. The five-course meal features pairings from the brewery—look out for some special releases and the return of Ghost Rider. Lewis and Palmetto’s Certified Cicerone Collin Clark will guide discussion throughout the evening.
