Out of the area beer/food tasting- Miss-i-Sippin

This may not have much relevance to me, but I like to support those less fortunate.  In this case, it is the citizens of Mississippi. 

A group of people around the University of Mississippi have come together to create an event to show people how beer can compliment food, and vice versa.  The the fundraiser for the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council is called Miss-i-Sippin:

The craft beer is represented by Lazy Magnolia, who sound like they know what is going on.  Sounds like a great idea, now if I only lived a bit closer.

We took the traditional upscale gala event of a wine tasting and revamped it into a causal laid back event by creating a beer and food tasting. We felt people wanted to relax and enjoy themselves.

Here is their menu:
Coors & Coors Light paired with:
Curry Coconut Popcorn with Toasted Sesame Seeds
Mexican Style Popcorn with Cumin and Red Pepper

Blue Moon paired with:
Spoons of Creme Fraiche, Orange Gelee and Pickled Ginger

Reb Ale paired with:

If only all the beer was MicroBrews, but I guess you have to work with what you have.
