Edible Pursuit at Brooklyn Brewery

Advance ticket sales have ended. There may still be tickets available at the door so, if you're in the neighborhood, stop by the brewery tonight and see if you can score a seat at the table.

Edible Pursuit at The Brooklyn Brewery

With fond memories of our first Edible Pursuit at Sheep Station still dancing in her head, Edible Brooklyn deputy editor Rachel Wharton—and recent James Beard Award winner—is hard at work assembling questions on Brooklyn beverage culture -- plus beer, wine and spirits themselves -- for wanna-be whizkids.
If that's you, mark your calendars to hit the fine tasting room of the Brooklyn Brewery on July 8th for our next Edible Pursuit, where your knowledge of potables will be put to the test with help from a panel of Brooklyn's best drinksmen and women: St. John Frizell (owner of Fort Defiance, spirits writer, drinksman), Garrett Oliver (Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster and beer royalty), and one more to come.

Teams of six or less will compete for mounds of prizes—from bottles of limited-edition beers to cookbooks, lovely coasters made from Brooklyn slate, artisanal pickles, restaurant gift certificates and other edible desirables—while fortifying their neurons with tasty morsels from The Meat Hook and Brooklyn Brewery suds made right on the premises .

WHEN: July 8, from 8 to 10 p.m. [[Like beer events? Join us at Good Beer at BAM on July 28.]]

WHERE: Brooklyn Brewery, 79 N. 11th Street at Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg

HOW MUCH: $20 to play (which also buys you two beers and a delicious sausage from the link-masters at The Meat Hook)

HOW TO PLAY: There will be four rounds of 15 questions, all alcohol themed, just like the summer issue of Edible Brooklyn. We will be pulling questions from four different areas: General Beverage, Spirits, Wine, and Beer, and each round should take about 20-30 minutes. In the first round players compete individually by shouting out correct answers, while in the last three rounds they will work together as teams of six or fewer and fill out answer sheets.
