Justin Dukes is a rising Nashville star who was named the 2015 Georgia Country Music Awards Male Artist of the Year. He will be the featured entertainment with his bandmates at the upcoming Brew and Crew Beer Pairing Dinner on July 22nd at The Dillard House in Dillard, Georgia. Less than 2 hours north of Atlanta on I-85 to I-985, area country music fans can enjoy some award winning craft beer and food from The Dillard House's renowned kitchen. This iconic farm to table restaurant is hosting the event in partnership with Southbound Brewing Company out of Savannah, Georgia to celebrate its centennial year.
“I am confident Dukes is a performer you’ll be seeing on the AMC Awards before we know it,” says Natalie Dillard Cross, Sales and Marketing Manager of The Dillard House. “We are excited to have him on our stage to delight guests with his unique voice,” she adds. Dukes has opened for artists such as Vince Gill, Charlie Daniels, Justin Moore, Big & Rich and A Thousand Horses. He has played at the world famous Blue Bird Café in Nashville. His voice is like no other in country music and his writing ability reaches all ages in the country music genre.
The beer-pairing dinner “Brew and Crew - We provide the brew. You bring the crew!" features five Southbound Brewing Company beers that have been paired with a specially designed menu. “We are excited to be a part of The Dillard House’s 100th birthday and have created a unique evening that shows how pairing beer and food is sweeping the country,” said Smith Mathews, Brewmaster and managing partner of Southbound Brewing Company. Dukes adds, "I can't wait to add my flavor of music to this event and hope country music fans who like great craft beer and awesome food will come join us!"
Mathews looks forward to showcasing his beers in the north Georgia mountains because they are "refreshing, have underlying citrus notes and will be a perfect summertime treat for guests to enjoy with The Dillard House’s delicious food,” he says. Both Mathews and Dukes promise an informative, fun and entertaining evening.
