Bin 707 Foodbar & Kannah Creek Brewing Company host Team Yeti Fundraiser Jan. 6
WHAT: Team Yeti Fundraiser
WHERE: Bin 707 Foodbar, 225 N. Fifth St., Grand Junction
WHEN: Tuesday, Jan. 6, 5 p.m. to close
COST: $50 per person
To raise funds for Powderhorn Mountain Resort’s Team Yeti, Bin 707 Foodbar and Kannah Creek Brewing Company joined forces. Together they will host a beer pairing at Grand Junction’s Bin 707 (225 N. Fifth St.) on Tuesday, Jan. 6, from 5 p.m. until close. Fifteen percent of sales from the beer pairing will go to the team. The special menu costs $50 per person, not including tax and tip.
“I’m a big supporter of Powderhorn,” said Josh Niernberg, executive chef of Bin 707 Foodbar. “We’re going to have some fun with it.”
Team Yeti is a training program with Powderhorn for advanced snowboarders and skiers seeking competition-level coaching, Powderhorn’s website said. Team Yeti serves youths aged 8-15, and they’re trained in “terrain park skills, backcountry skills, avalanche-beacon training, competition preparation and strategy, and mountain etiquette.”
According to Niernberg, a five-course menu will be served all evening on top of the restaurant’s regular menu, matching Bin 707 food creations to Kannah Creek brews.
Special-reserve beer will be included with the meal, along with seasonal food items.
“We’ve been doing a lot of beer pairings,” said Pete Jeffreys, Kannah Creek’s head brewer. “Food and beer pairings is trendy in the food world in general. Highlighting subtleties in flavors and foods creates a very rich culinary experience.”
There’s one caveat, Niernberg noted: Even though Bin 707’s menu will be served as well on Jan. 6, all parties at a table must order from either the beer-pairing menu or the regular menu. Mixing and matching meals from both menus won’t be allowed.
Following the Team Yeti Fundraiser, both Jeffreys and Niernberg look forward to more joint projects in 2015.
“The two of us have a lot to share,” Jeffreys said, with Niernberg noting: “Hopefully this will be the beginning of a great relationship.”
