Pig Island is a do not miss event. When ever Jimmy and the Food Karma put together event, do me a favor and scoop up tickets. All through the year, the team throws all different themed events. This one can be the Granddaddy of all of them. Pig Island will be taking place in Red Hook Brooklyn at Erie Basin Park, next to Ikea. Soak in the sun, have a few cold ones at some pork from some of the finest pit masters and chefs.
Back with the brewski of the week . In the past month and a half, I’ve attended two major beer events in New York. I was able to slip some freebies to bring home and review. My first beer I had the pleasure to slip and sip is the Elysian Space Dust IPA. Elysian is a brewery out of Washington state . It pours a nice golden color and has a nice citrus – hoppy aroma. The ABV is 7.2. Its a smooth and enjoyable IPA. Grab it, if you find it at your local bodega.
With Oktoberfest in full swing in Germany, I thought it would be only right to make the brewski of the week a OktoberFest Marzen.
This Ayinger is probably one of the best representation of a Marzen brew. It has a deep golden tinted amber and a nice sweet taste. It goes down pretty smoothly too. If you are celebrating the beer lifestyle, Ayinger Marzen is a stellar choice.
