Brew n’ Chew Tickets On Sale

2014 August 26

Brew n’ Chew VII, Sunday 10/5, 3-5pm

Beer is great.  But it needs a scotch egg partner or dry rubbed rib wingman to help it reach max potential.

Welcome to Brew n’ Chew where your eating and drinking dreams will be realized for the seventh straight year.  Come on out, sponsor Grow To Learn (100% of proceeds go to this great cause), and taste the deliciousness.  Several teams will compete with their best homebrew/appetizer pairings and you will vote for the ones that make you sing the loudest.  Pay $20 now instead of $25 at the door.  The price includes a taste of everything and these 100 tickets often sell out before the day of the event.

Sponsored by The Diamond,, Sly Fox Brewing, Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co., and Brooklyn Kitchen

Friend and resident hot dog genius, Rusty Ralston, brings us his annual Diamond concoction on 8/9.  Garvey’s Ghost Dog includes roasted plantain, pickled calooloo, and roti flatbread.  This delicacy is inspired by the dub side of Burning Spear’s Marcus Garvey which we will play on Saturday for eating inspiration as well.


Brew n’ Chew 7, Sunday 10/5…Call to Competitors

2014 July 21

Please let us know if you are interested in competing!  You can comment here or email me at

Sharpen your knives and clean out your carboys…its time to see who can dazzle the people of Greenpoint with the most delicious, most inventive, and most unique homebrew and food pairings.  This is not a formal competition with qualified beer nerd judges nor do we compare specific beer and food styles.  This is a free for all “apples to oranges” event where popular opinion rules and the only thing we take seriously is that the damn thing tastes delicious.
