Shack X IPA

Shack-X-IPA-Blog

Lovers of America take note: our friends at Shake Shack are approaching their tenth anniversary and the celebration is shaping up to be the best thing since sliced buns. From June 9-13, the original Madison Square Park location will be putting on a continuous bash featuring all of the companions and collaborators they’ve met on their journey from humble shack to burger celebrities. Chefs Daniel Boulud, David Chang, Andrew Zimmern, Daniel Hum and April Bloomfield have all been enlisted to create one-day-only special edition burgers, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Madison Square Park Conservancy and NYC Parks. On June 12-Shake Shack’s actual 10th birthday-the Madison Square Park location will be hosting the Decade of Shack-Fest, featuring live music, a cake from pastry phenom Dominique Ansel, a pay-what-you-want Shack-cago Dogs hot dog cart and a HENGE concrete ping pong table to mark the date in style. Brooklyn Brewery will be there to support our long-time collaborators with our special edition SHACK X IPA, available for this summer only at all US Shake Shack locations. It’s a hearty, malt-balanced IPA with a beautiful reddish-coppery color that provides the perfect complement to Shake Shack’s signature burgers. As an added bonus, if you order one at the Decade of Shack-Fest, you’ll get your ale in a commemorative Decade of Shack 16oz cup that’s yours to cherish forever. Check out all the information and details on the special burgers here, and we’ll see you at the park.

Brooklyn Brewery Hits the Pits: Return to Grillstock 2014

grillstock fest dates

Ah, Grillstock: a double-whammy festival of “meat, music and mayhem” that has attracted a massive following in the UK in recent years, drawn to its boisterous crowds, endless music, delicious meats and general celebration of all the good things in life. Brooklyn Brewery is proud to be returning to Grillstock this year to slake your deepest thirst, and we’re bringing a bit of hometown style with us. Our fabled Brooklyn Brewery tap truck will be on hand, and for the first time ever we will be setting up our own marble-topped bar and an entire second stage featuring acoustic blues and “Brooklyn hillbilly tunes.” We’ll be pouring a bottomless supply of Brooklyn Lager and Brooklyn Summer Ale on draft, and will feature a “flash sale” of a single keg of either Brooklyn Brown, Brooklyn EIPA or Brooklyn Sorachi Ace. Check out the full festival event posts below, put on your meat-and-beer drinking hat (you do have one, right?) and meet us at the bar.

Read This: New York Times Goes Inside Chefs’ Fridges, Finds Brooklyn Beer

Read-this-new-york-times-magazine-fridges

(Photo by Eric Helgas)

The New York Times Magazine did a photo expose on 11 of New York Cities’ top chefs’ refrigerators. It allowed us to take a glance deep into their souls as we peruse their personal stores, trying to catch a glimpse of what inspires their genius. A congratulations goes out to Bryce Shuman of Betony, Einat Admony of Balaboosta, and Jody Williams of Buvette. (though maybe the credit goes to her girlfriend) These progressive chefs had the foresight to have Brooklyn brews in their fridge, ensuring them as purveyors of good taste and assuredly wonderful hosts. As much as we love Maysville, we need to have an intervention for Kyle Knall. And as for Amanda Cohen— we will party with you any time.

Hopefully, when the New York Times reaches out to us for photos of our beer fridge we’ll have food from some of these fantastic restaurants on our shelves.
