Beach Barbecue and Idyll Hounds Brewing Company to host Beer Dinner benefitting local family

Special to Gannett

On Oct.14, Back Beach Barbecue and Idyll Hounds Brewing Company will host a Beer Dinner from 5:30-9:30 p.m. at 19714 Panama City Beach Parkway. A collaboration of craft brews and various barbecue options will be featured.

Guests are invited to a cocktail hour before sitting down to enjoy an amuse bouche followed by a four-course meal prepared by Back Beach Barbecue Pitmaster Shane Kirkland. Each dish will be accompanied by a specially selected beer by Idyll Hounds Brewing Company.

Kirkland has created a menu featuring various specialty meats including lamb, andouille sausage, and filet, along with seafood including diver scallops, blue crab, and lobster. The dessert course will also feature a special smoked element to round out the evening.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Gould Family, a local family of four who are facing unexpected medical bills for their 4-year-old daughter, Kyla. A three-inch mass was discovered on Kyla’s brain and she now must undergo multiple surgeries in order to have it fully removed. Kyla and her family have a long road of recovery thus prompting the owners of Back Beach Barbecue to do whatever they could to give back and support the local family.

Tickets are on sale for $125 and can be reserved by calling the restaurant at 850-249-0822. To learn more about the event, visit Beach Beach Barbecue’s Facebook page.
