For my second, and final, event of New York City Beer Week, I've cooked up a doozy with Chris Cuzme. Once again, we're taking over Bushwick's BBQ-driven Arrogant Swine for an event featuring New York City's best professional and soon-to-be-pro brewers—none repeated from Jimmy's Homebrew Jamboree—and loads of wildly inventive sausages. The delicious details...
What: Winter's Grind at the Arrogant Swine When: Saturday, February 28, 1 p.m.–4 p.m. Where: The Arrogant Swine (173 Morgan Ave.), Bushwick, Brooklyn Tickets: $40 until February 9. $45 afterward. Buy them here. They go on sale today (January 15) at 12 p.m.
Tyson Ho and his fellow chef friends (names to be released soon) will be hand-cranking eight different all-you-can-eat sausages such as oak-smoked bratwurst, northern-Thai turkey and chicken tikki masala. (Don’t worry: vegetarians will be fed too.)
To drink, I've worked with Cuzme to hand-select nine of the city’s top homebrewers to make dark and delightful beers. Moreover, we’ve tabbed 14 of NYC’s best and newest breweries to supply drinkers with the finest February-friendly beers. That means you’ll be drinking Other Half, Greenpoint Beer and Ale, Secret Engine, Keg & Lantern, Threes Brewing, Bridge and Tunnel, Rockaway, Gun Hill and so many more. More than 20 unique, rarely tasted brews will be poured, from cedar tip-infused lagers to double IPAs, coffee cream ales, imperial rye ales and everything in between.
Winter’s chill won’t stand a chance.
P.S. That’s also because we'll have heat lamps galore, making this an indoor-outdoor event. Ever wanted to play lawn-size Jenga while eating sausage and drinking a double IPA? Now’s your chance.
