The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma will showcase the craft brews created by Hanson Brothers Beer for its first Brewers’ Table.

The evening will begin with hors d’oeuvres and a special beer cocktail, followed by a four-course meal prepared by executive chef Jeff Marlow, with each course accompanied by a different Hanson Brothers Beer — Hop Jam Festive Ale, a spiced farmhouse ale; Redland, an amber ale; Mmmhops pale ale; and Tulsa Tea, an imperial stout.

Each beer will be served in a unique souvenir glass for patrons to take home.

Taylor, Isaac and Zac Hanson will be attending the dinner.

“Since the first Hop Jam festival, we have been proud to partner with the phenomenal team at the food bank to help impact hunger in Oklahoma through the funds raised with our one-of-a-kind Hop Guitar,” Taylor Hanson said. “This year, we are excited to host a special gathering to further galvanize support for this great cause.”

“The food bank has a remarkable history of working on hunger issues in the area with the Hanson brothers,” said Executive Director Eileen Bradshaw.

“They are totally committed to the local community, and their determined efforts toward social justice are inspiring. We love working with them.”

The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma is the largest private hunger organization in eastern Oklahoma, providing the equivalent of 339,000 meals every week to its Partner Programs across the region and through its own initiatives.

Event details: 6 p.m. Monday, May 8, at the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, 1304 N. Kenosha Ave.

Tickets: $150.
