Beer tasting at a BYOB

During Philly Beer Week, at least one BYOB is getting into the act.

Chef Al Paris at  Heirloom Fine American Cookery (8705 Germantown Ave. in Chestnut Hill) will host a dinner on Wednesday, June 5 at which six dishes will be paired with a dozen craft beers. Tickets are $50.
