If you’re looking for a great food- and spirits-filled weekend nestled in relaxing and gorgeous surroundings, set your GPS to Stonewall Resort in the rolling hills of Central West Virginia near Weston. I was lucky enough to score a ticket to the recent sold-out Big Timber Brewing Co. craft beer pairing extravaganza there, the first in a group of four Appalachian Dinner Series events taking place at the resort this winter. On a snowy Saturday evening tucked into Lightburn’s Restaurant overlooking the stunning lodge, lake and golf course, some 60 guests were treated to a special evening featuring a four-course meal prepared by Stonewall Executive Chef Corey Pickens, with exclusive beers paired by Big Timber brewer Matt Kwasniewski.

Elkins-based Big Timber, by the way, was the first West Virginia brewer to win a medal at the prestigious Great American Beer Festival just a few months ago and was named Best Brewery in West Virginia by Brilliant Stream.
