Fight Food Waste, Pair Beer and Hot Sauce, Vote for the Best Homebrew, + An Ice Cream Celebration
So much food is wasted nowadays but thankfully there are some organizations trying to fix that. Join a panel to hear about what is being done and find out what you can do. Panelists include the founder of CSA Local Roots and the owner of Toast Ale, which is making beer from leftover bread.
If you pair a hoppy IPA with spicy food, you're in for a flavor enhancement. The bitterness of the hops accentuates the heat from the chiles. Feel the burn at Jimmy's No. 43 where samples of hot sauce will be paired with hoppy beers. Also learn about tasting, pairing, and sweet sweet pain.
We finally have so many great breweries in NYC, but think about all the beer being made that most people never get to taste. Join a group of beer professionals at Gun Hill Brewing Company as they taste and judge 30 home-brew concoctions to award the best. Perhaps you'll get to taste (and vote for) the work of one of the city's future great brewers.
We can't think of a more appropriate summer treat than ice cream - and lots of it!! Alongside their weekly market, Grand Bazaar NYC will be throwing an ice cream party this weekend with some of the best artisanal ice cream makers hawking sweet cooling treats. And to top it all off, it's National Ice Cream Day so there's no reason to feel guilty!
