The smooth malt character of this Dopelbock version of our flagship lager balances the roasted elements of this dish with the sweet and earthy notes of the parsnip puree. With a body strong enough to hold up to roasted meat and fine tuned delicate flavor to work with the subtleties of this unique cheese and onion pairing, the versatility of this beer makes it an ideal dinner guest.

SLIDELUCK LONDON V RECAP

On a cold but sunny Saturday, Slideluck London celebrated its fifth show by throwing a smashing Slideluck event for the grand finale of FORMAT Festival, in Derby’s charming old Chocolate Factory.

Between 6 and 7pm the 200+ (international) guests arrived by car, train, and the special Slideluck London coach. All were welcomed with Format chocolates, Brooklyn Brewery beers and – as more guests arrived- an ever growing number of delicious potluck dishes on the buffet. All indulged themselves on velvety smooth carrot cupcakes, colorful salads, broccoli pies and much much more. Mothersmilk was also on the menu, although only for one very special little guest!!  Zac, born only days before the event, is the beautiful newborn of featured artist Fjona Hill.

Then, the guests sat down to watch the slideshows as curated by Monica Allende, photo editor of The Sunday Times Magazine and founder of the pioneering photography section, Spectrum.

Brooklyn Beers kept everyone’s throats chilled, hot water bottles warmed peoples hands, and an overwhelming display of visuals and audio was overflowing the audience.

In the break people could play and have their picture taken in Kitty Walkers industrial cardboard city photobooth.

After part two Director Maria Teresa Salvati announced the winner of the Blurb award, selected by her and Louise Clements, artistic director of Quad and Format festival. Alfonso Almendros is the lucky Slideluck artist that will go home with a £350 Blurb Gift Card!

Then she announced the artists that would be featured in Spectrum, as selected by Monica Allende. Monica was originally going to pick one, but, overwhelmed by the outstanding works, decided to give 7 photographers the chance to shine at this amazing platform. They are: Fan Shisan, Alfonso Almendros, Rafael Arocha, Alexander Aksakov, Arantxa Cedillo, Jean-Marc Caimi & Valentina Piccinni and Bryan Schutmaat.

After the slideshows and a little break, it was time to taste the sound of The Developer: a unique multi-artist residency responding to the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site at John Smedley, especially created for FORMAT13.

As icing on the Slideluck-cake, a raffle was held, in which lucky winners took home prizes not only from sponsors such as Viewbook and Gup magazine, but also 7 beautiful prints kindly donated by participating artists.

All in all, the evening offered a relaxed vibe, with the guests mingling to discuss love, life, art and the universe. Slideluck London was a great succes, thanks to all that were part of it!

A massive thanks to the director Maria Teresa Salvati; the super-efficient and creative producer Nichon Glerum; Pedro Lopez Paz, who helped with all the technical aspects of this edition and was a super hero in organising the coach from London; and Kitty Walker who jumped in to support the whole team wherever needed and who designed built the wonderful cardboard industrial city used for the photo booth. Also, this night would not have been possible without the help of the amazing team of Format: Louise Clements, Federica Chiocchetti, Michael Sargeant, Sebah Chaudhry, Jill Carruthers and all their fantastic volunteers that helped us out. We thank our partners and sponsors Viewbook, GUP magazine, Blurb, Feature Shoot, Format Festival & Quad, Develop Photo, Lily Vanilli, Duckrabbit, and of course Brooklyn Brewery.

SLIDELUCK BARCELONA VII RECAP

Once in a while, quite infrequently, it gets cold and windy in Barcelona…. March 14th was one of those rare days, so the Slideluck and Pati Llimona teams had to take some quick decissions: moving the Slideluck slideshow, and subsequent dinner, from the 15th century patio to the main hall in the Civic Center building.

The shifting of a few signs and the collaboration of our attendees allowed us to start almost on time, and those few minutes of waiting passed rapidly while viewing Gustavo Germano’s touching Ausencias exhibition in Pati Llimona’s lobby.

Once everybody made it to the main hall, we realized that we had a full room… Approximately 100 persons attended the Slideluck, making it the most successful event in the last few years in Barcelona!

The audience enjoyed the 15 pieces that were projected in the slideshow and we moved on to have dinner in the main hall. We enjoyed all the different delicacies that the public brought: pizza, profiteroles, “tortilla de patatas”, and four different types of pasta salad. Pasta salad is probably the staple of any Slideluck potluck!

The stars of the night were, as usual, the bottles of Brooklyn Lager and Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale that were graciously donated by Brooklyn Brewery, with the collaboration of Crusat, their distributor in Barcelona.

With the delicious food, the beer and the photographs from our friends in “Piel de Foto” that were being exhibited in the foyer, the hours passed rapidly. It was already midnight when the last guests left Pati Llimona.

All in all, it was a good night of photography, food, drinks, and conversations with friends, just as one would expect at a Slideluck…

Mash Files: Austin Edition

“Mash In Austin: Off With A BANG!”
By Brooklyn Brewery House Chef Andrew Gerson

From food cart to farmers market to fine dining, Austin is home to a food culture that is thriving, celebrated and truly enjoyed. Coming off a whirlwind week in Houston, my energy was reinvigorated as I stepped onto Boggy Creek Farm, and was greeted by Carol Anne’s favorite chicken. A five acre spread, nuzzled in the heart of east Austin, this urban farm is home to not only happy chickens, but 1.5 acres of cultivated land ripe for the picking. And picking we did. Our first breakfast for my lucky colleague, the magnificent Meg, was tacos with earthy lambs quarter, sweet baby carrots, and leeks that our silver-haired, majestic farmer, Carol Anne, had just dug up minutes earlier (bewildered  at the fact that this Brooklyn boy was walking her farm barefoot in shorts and a t-shirt while her crew of hippy sun burnt farm boys shivered in the crisp morning air). A quick trip to Barton springs on this 90 degree day and a dip in the local watering hole reinforced my growing assumption that this week was going to be one adventure to remember, even if our tipsy evenings were making it easy to forget. (Continued below slideshow.)

With the craziness of SXSW just kicking into gear the town was electric. Droves of people roamed the streets, music bellowed from open-air, string-lit, Brooklyn beer-carrying watering holes, that give German bier gardens a run for their money. This town knows how to party, but also how to treat it’s eleven month growing season with pride and respect. I spent early morning s harvesting veggies from Springdale Farm, another of East Austin’s urban gems. Springdale is one of the four farms within a 20 block radius of where we were staying. I met the chefs of the best restaurants in Austin at the crack of dawn all eager to get the best picks from Glen and Linda at the Springdale Farmers market. This is a town that cares about its sourcing, supports its farmers, and eats well because of it.

My many phone calls with chef Mat Clouser of Swifts Attic left me eager to get into his kitchen two prepare our first Local 2 Ways dinner. Not even the sheer size of his sous chef Zack Northcutt could deter me from getting my hands on some nilgai antelope and turning it into tartar with a sprinkle of pecan gremolata, my interpretation of Mat’s famed antelope steak frites (which we served side by side). What a meal! Warm oysters with compressed cucumber- fingerlime mignonette, and a lamb and fig ragu with ricotta gnocchi that left this pasta enthusiast breathless, not to mention our guests. One long communal table, big bottles of Brooklyn Local 1 & 2 abounding and loud, boisterous conversation amongst strangers is what this The Mash is all about. After many celebratory drinks and an inebriated pact to meet up with Zack Monday morning to “pop caps” and eat BBQ I felt like a girl on prom night, slightly tipsy and ready to take on the next adventure.

Next stop, Chaos Cooking, at the home of our gracious host Pablo was all it was cracked up to be as one 21 year-old adorned in anarchy patches prepared us a cheese and artichoke dip. The dip was eaten along with many other delectable morsels from our varied guests around the backyard fire pit while the chaos in the kitchen ensued as 50 people scrambled for available cooking contraptions. All this plus a canoe filled with Brooklyn beer.

Springdale Farm, the host of our first slow supper, lit in hanging lights was enchanting, an 80 person spread along 10 picnic tables under a tent with the brisk wind nudging everyone just a little bit closer. Jesse Griffiths, Marcus Samuelsson and I prepared course after course on long wooden boards as bottles of Ama Bionda, Sorachi Ace & vintage Black Chocolate Stout piled up on the tables. A mind blowing art installation from Nuit Blanche New York was the malted whipped cream to our Mast Brothers chocolate and stout bread pudding. Winter is Coming was poured, but this felt like a summer retreat, especially since New York was covered in snow.

All packed up and ready to go I had one more anticipated stop in Lockhart to fill my BBQ desires. And Zack was right, BBQ tastes better with Gun Powder on your hands. Needless to say, we left Austin with a bang.

The cozy garden space at the CTC International non profit welcomed Slideluck back for another fantastic show in a spectacular outdoor setting by hosting Austin Slideluck V. Rainy weather that worried attendees held off for a perfect evening of laughs and art in the outdoor venue. Plenty of photographers were ready to kick off their shoes and see the show as they were wrapping up the 3 day Texas Photo Roundup conference. Over 250 people made their way to the garden to share amazing dishes and see Slideluck’s fifth Austin showing. The crowd was full of smiling faces and happy potluckers ready to mingle in the laid back vibe. Everyone ate home made dishes as unique as chocolate cameras and devoured pizza from Homeslice while happily indulging in almost 400 cans of Brooklyn Lager.

We were fortunate enough to have Molly Roberts, a native Texan and photo editor of Smithsonian Magazine, curate all the wonderful submitted work. The show highlighted many local artists demonstrating a broad range of talent from abstract iphone photography to portraits of musicians to one favorite pet dog. The first half got the audience to ‘turn up’ while the second half could best be described as ‘Crunk’.

A few lucky guests were awarded with raffle prizes for bringing outstanding dishes that were favorites of the volunteer staff. After the show was complete, raffle prizes given away and plenty of Brooklyn Lager had been drank. The night ended with the smashing of a piñata and the quick gathering of delicious candy.

Austin’s spirited community pulsed all night, Slideluck Potshow Austin V brought out the love for the arts in the city and the creative people who make it home.

Continuing a tradition of giving back, Brooklyn Brewery cooked up The Mash as a benefit to Slow Food USA and local Slow Food chapters in each city it visits.

SLIDELUCK VANCOUVER RECAP

SLPS081S

What a night!  Vancouverites came together like never before at the inaugural SLIDELUCK Vancouver to recognize local artists, enjoy new food and celebrate the arts community.

Hosted in the atrium of the historic re-developed Woodwards building, over 150 people joined together to dine on delicious dishes contributed by Save On Meats, Not So Fast Food, Brioche Urban Baking & Catering, Le Tigre Cuisine, Ze Bite and Earnest Ice Cream.

The phrase “I can’t believe it’s finally happening!” was over-heard more than once coming from tables of citizens as diverse as Canada itself.  Each person with a cup full of wine or beer from our friends at Brooklyn Brewery.

As the night went on and strangers became friends, the whole crowd buzzed with a sense of joy, appreciation and goodwill.  Content with the knowledge by coming out to SLIDELUCK Vancouver, they weren’t just supporting the artists but also the Vancouver community by donating one Save On Meats meal token to our local community partners for each ticket purchased.

As light from the last slideshow faded, music from the live band Warless grew louder, one thing became clear.  SLIDELUCK Vancouver is only getting started, and here to stay!
