Tyson Ho likes swine. Joshua M. Bernstein and Chris Cuzme? They like beer.
To combine these two great life pleasures, the gluttonous trio is once more joining forces to throw their annual Solstice Session at Bushwick's premier North Carolina-style BBQ joint, Arrogant Swine.
Pitmaster Ho will slow-roast the finest heritage pig and serve mountains of pulled-pork sandwiches. (Don't worry: veggies will have food too.) To drink, Cuzme and Bernstein have assembled a line-up of the city's best session beer and offbeat ferments--low alcohol but not low in flavor. And perfect for drinking all afternoon.
We've enlisted 10 of the city's best homebrewers to make session beers (around 4.5 percent ABV and under), then we've tabbed NYC's best and brightest breweries to craft low-alcohol beauties too. That means you'll be drinking the likes of Other Half, LIC Beer Project, Finback, Strong Rope, Rockaway Brewing, Kings County Brewers Collective, Braven and more. There will be 25 unique, rarely tasted session brews on offer, from table sours to cracker-crisp pilsners, fruited Berliner weisses, session IPAs and everything under the low-alcohol sun. (And yes, you'll be able to drink all you want.)
You'll savor the beverages in more than 3,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor industrial paradise, with picnic tables aplenty. Once again, there's no better way to kick off the summer.
