"There is a revolution happening in the world of food and the world of beer, and we are happy to celebrate this revolution with our friends around the US."
NYC food and art organizations have been closely linked to Brooklyn Brewery from the beginning. Be it a beer dinner, cook-off, concert or film festival, the ethos of these happenings has consistently mirrored the consideration and creativity behind the making of The Brewery's beer.
