Ithaca Beer Dinner @ DEKS

Was browsing the DEKS American Restaurant website a few days ago and noticed a beer tasting scheduled for 6/23, with no other information listed aside from the $50.00 per person reservation.


Further investigation via Google led me to this, courtesy of Ithaca Beer Company’s website (
