UPDATE // TUE, JAN 18
Last night’s Ghost Bottle Night @ Blue Ribbon Bakery on Downing Street was a tasty success. Goals met include:
+ Sipping rare bottle-conditioned Brooklyn Brewery beers and hearing about each from Garrett while he and his brewing team served us.
+ Enjoying passed Blue Ribbon bites including their unique and downright delicious classed-up renditions of chicken wings, deviled eggs and pork rinds.
+ Doing all this inside the heart of a working bakery (the heat of which quickly became part of the ambiance) which boasts the oldest wood-fired bread oven in NYC and turns out literally thousands of loaves daily.
+ The Brooklyn team being allowed by the magnanimous hosts to get their hands in some dough (after thoroughly washing said appendages), where passionate attempts were made to roll the gooey goodness into bread.
+ Enjoying a post-tasting meal of grilled sardines, steak tartar, bone marrow with bacon bread, foie gras, grilled shrimp and a cheese plate starring Stilton.
Be sure to visit Blue Ribbon if you have not already, and keep an eye out right here on the Brooklyn Bloggery for future Ghost Bottle nights and other tasting events. We look forward to sharing a sip and a bite.
At Brooklyn Brewery we make many beers that are unseen. Some are experimental. Some we make just for ourselves. In fact, some are so rare, and we like them so much, that we can’t bear to sell them. However, for one hour, on Ghost Bottle Night, the unseen become visible, and even tastable. Join the Brooklyn Brewing Team at 6:45 pm sharp on Tuesday, January 17th at Blue Ribbon Bakery, 35 Downing Street (corner of Bedford) and taste these rare beers with us. Check out the tasty stuff coming out of NYC’s only wood-fired oven – Blue Ribbon Bakery is pretty handy with grain and yeast too. No waiting on line, no handing over scads of cash – just a bunch of brewers pouring you some of our favorite stash. Just be a scintillating conversationalist and we’ll be glad to see you. Be on time – at 7:45 pm, Ghost Bottle Night will vanish as suddenly as it appeared.
