Vegan BBQ & Scientific Beer: The Week's Best Food Events 


Presented by Durham's Parks & Recreation Department, the smart little series Botany Bar Crawl aims to explore the science of sipping craft beverages from the city's new glut of beer makers, cider makers, and distillers. For this ticketed edition on May 15, erudite imbibers head to Fullsteam, the "plow-to-pint" brewery that sourced forty percent of its beer's ingredients last year within a three-hundred-mile radius of its Rigsbee Avenue headquarters. You'll learn about hop and barley varieties and how they affect the taste of the final product—and then get a taste yourself.

Speaking of tastes, there will be plenty of free ones at Raleigh Wine Shop's weekend-long fifth-anniversary party. On Friday night, Craig Rudewicz presents a workshop on "wine cocktails" made with his Crude bitters, while Sunday afternoon offers an opportunity to meet Richard Betts and Carla Rzeszewski, an intriguing and energetic pair of wine makers looking to make that venture more exciting. As they speak inside, food trucks and Raleigh pastry emporium lucettegrace will offer treats outside from noon until four p.m.


For decades, Will Tuttle has written and lectured extensively about the global impacts of a vegan lifestyle, epitomized by his book The World Peace Diet: Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony. On Wednesday, May 11, in Raleigh and on Thursday, May 12, in Carrboro, Vegans for Peace presents a combination barbecue and lecture with Tuttle. It's free, with donations going to cover expenses.
