BLAST! From The Past: A Dinner Party Series

DSC_0552

 BlastFromthePast-Logo

Join us in New York City’s first culinary time machine at Humboldt & Jackson as we journey back through great eras in New York’s culinary history. We’ll be visiting four unique periods, bringing you beer-centric meals inspired by each evening’s place in history. This is BLAST! from the Past: A Brooklyn Brewery Dinner Party Series.

Dinner Party No. 1: Nieuw Amsterdam
April 16, 2015 SOLD OUT
 We travel to the 1650s, where the Dutch colonists are devouring their way through the New World. This strange land has given them a bounty of fish, game, and produce, but little in the way of potable water. The Dutch have cleverly responded by brewing a ludicrous amount of beer to fuel their trading and accompany their “hotchpots”.

Dinner Party No. 2: The Restaurant is Born
June 25, 2015 SOLD OUT. Join the waitlist here.
We find ourselves in 1820s New York, where oysters are king. The most recent wave of immigration has brought with it a rash of aspiring entrepreneurs setting up shops, stands, and even the very first restaurant. Dine at the intersection of high and low culture with outsized shellfish, peanuts, and French-style cuisine.

Dinner Party No. 3: Flappers, Fringes and Fast Cars
August 20, 2015 Join the waitlist & you’ll be notified when tickets are live
We touch down in the 1920s, with the pesky Volstead Act and Prohibition getting in the way of everyone’s fun. Luckily, true New Yorkers have figured out inventive measures for getting around the law. In the right circles, decadence is the name of the game and what should be scarce is more than abundant.

Dinner Party No. 4: Windows on the World
October 15, 2015
We’re going back to Back to the Future to visit New York City in the 1980s. This wild decade included not only the founding of the Brooklyn Brewery, but co-founder Steve Hindy hosting his first-ever beer dinner at Windows on the World. That menu will be brought back to light just in time for our trip.

Thanks to the improbable energies powering our craft, each voyage in the BLAST! From The Past series is only $70 including tax, gratuity and all beverages. The exact mechanics of our time machine are slightly difficult to explain, as any sense of time within a restaurant is extremely vague. All we can say is that food and beer have special powers to take us places. Why not use those powers to explore the culinary bloodlines of one of the world’s greatest cities?

This experience is immersive and we encourage participation in whatever way you see fit. There is a very real chance that bits of the eras we visit will leak into our craft, but you do not have to fear the strange clothing and forgotten technologies we may encounter (though you may end up taking some of these artifacts home with you at the end of the trip.) The Brooklyn Historical Society will be along to explain our travels and prevent any time-tinkering that could open a paradox loop. With Time Captain and Brooklyn Brewery Chef Andrew Gerson at the helm and his trusty crew throughout the vessel, you can rest assured that you’ll be in good hands.

Check out these photos from last year’s Dinner Parties and get ready; we’ll be releasing tickets to each dinner one month out. Follow @BrooklynBrewery and @BKLYNHouseChef in the meantime for behind the scenes peeks at our time travel prep.

Dinner Party No. 4 with Sea to Table and Island Creek Oysters

H&J-14.10-SeaToTable
Brooklyn Brewery’s Dinner Party is a collaborative dinner series dedicated to spotlighting local producers and rare beer pairings held at Humboldt & Jackson. This month, we celebrate sustainable seafood with Island Creek Oysters and Sea2Table.
Come to Humboldt & Jackson on Thursday, October 23 at 6:30 PM for our fourth Dinner Party. This month’s dinner brings seafood to the forefront, with Chef Andrew Gerson teaming up with Sea to Table and previous Mash collaborators Island Creek Oysters to help him explore the bounty of local seafood. New York City has a proud history of excellent seafood, from street hawkers shilling oysters fresh from New York Harbor in days past to modern fishermen pulling in top notch fish from many surrounding waterways. All of this history, some of Brooklyn Brewery’s best and rarest beers, and Chef Gerson’s signature seafood crudo (plus other exciting dishes) will make this a meal to remember.
Island Creek Oysters has worked with Chef Gerson on previous Dinner Parties, bringing bivalves to Brooklyn as appetizers and accents to some of his favorite dishes. They are dedicated to farming the highest-quality oysters available. The Island Creek team also runs the Island Creek Foundation, dedicated to promoting “aquaculture as a responsible means of solving the issue of global food production.”
Sea to Table is a family-run business dedicated to connecting small fishermen with chefs invested in sustainably sourcing. When nearby connections are unavailable, Sea to Table turns to temperature-controlled overnight shipping to help every chef have a “local” seafood market available. This shipping network makes it possible for small-scale fishing operations to run profitably, encouraging responsible fishing and smart consumption.
Tickets for this sea-centered edition of our Dinner Party are $85, so be sure to reel yours in quickly and join us at the table.
