Grapes vs Grains at Austin's American Grill

Austin's American GrillIt's a timeless battle over which pairs best with food: Wine or Beer, Grapes vs Grains, Corks vs Caps. The folks at Austin's American Grill on Harmony Road in Fort Collins wants you to make the ultimate decision at an upcoming Beer & Wine dinner on November 10th. The dinner starts promptly at 6:00pm and costs $40 per person.
