Brooklyn Brewery Mash — an international traveling food, beer and arts festival — is making its annual stop in New Orleans from March 23-29.
The event offers a week's worth of dinners, tastings and shows including a "slow supper" celebrating New Orleans' bounty of local produce in conjunction with Dinner Lab and a "pints and pies" event pairing Brooklyn Brewery beer with slices from Pizza Delicious.
“With the Brooklyn Brewery Mash, we bring people together with beer. But it is more than beer. It is homegrown food, homegrown beverages of all kinds and homegrown businesses," said Brooklyn Brewery co-founder Steve Hindy. "In 2015, we’re very excited to be joining our craft beer brethren in New Orleans, along with chefs, artists and the creative class in-and-around [New Orleans], in celebration of our third year hosting. For example, this year we’re bringing some new partners to the New Orleans Mash like Animation Block Party...featuring the world’s best in animation with Brooklyn and New Orleans animators.”
The Brooklyn beefsteak dinner looks to be one of the week's liveliest events, combining the New York beefsteak tradition with beer, "proto-hillbilly" music and a communal "bread stacking" competition.
"New Orleans is the perfect venue for pairing food and beer, which is why we have so much in common. We value the importance of local ingredients and food that create a sense of place, pride and a respect for our cities," said Brooklyn Brewery Chef Andrew Gerson. "We’re teaming up with...Dinner Lab, which is always a hit and a lot of fun. We’re collaborating with some new partners, like Brooklyn Beefsteak, who will be bringing their beef-and-beer-fest to New Orleans for the very first time. Additionally, we’ll also be at Pizza Delicious, where I’ll be serving up...beers alongside their best slices.”
