Event Details

It's Back! Our interactive butchering demo, paired with local craft beer and dinner from Crave Catering and Sloppy Mama's Barbeque.

The perfect holiday gift? Treat your favorite carnivore to a Meat Lover or VIP ticket so they take home prime cuts of meat after the class. 

Mess Hall's popular butchering series, Some Disassembly Required will be back for another appearance on Wednesday, January 23rd from 6:30 - 9:30pm.

Join Mess Hall for our signature whole-animal butchering class, paired with local craft beer & dinner by Sloppy Mama's BBQ - aka your best Wednesday night this Winter!


What to expect:

Gather at Mess Hall to watch Mike Haney, a skilled butcher from All Purpose (and formerly Birch & Barley and The Salt Line) break down a beautiful free range, heritage pig, sourced directly from Spring House Farm, in Lovettsville Va. During the interactive 3 hour event, Mike will cover many butchering techniques and skills while you indulge in local craft beers and BBQ. Yes, you can don gloves and participate to an extent (but you cannot wield the blades!). We will also discuss various types of charcuterie preparations, and unlimited Q&A.

Joe Neuman, pitmaster and founder of Sloppy Mama's Barbeque will provide a dinner of smoked pork and hand-made sausages, plus sides. VIP and Meat Lover packages include prime cuts of meat to take home after the class.


Ticket Options (all ticket levels include dinner and unlimited local craft beers):

  • VIP Ticketholders will take home premium cuts: chops, pork belly and sausage (approx 6 lbs = $90+ value)

  • Meat-Lover Ticketholders will take home heritage braising cuts and sausage (approx 5 lbs = $50+ value)

  • Voyeur Ticket Holders will go home with full bellies and empty hands.

It's your best chance to be the the most interesting person in your office on Thursday're welcome.
