The folks at Dooby’s are doing the holidays right with beer, ugly sweaters, and camaraderie. We’ll let them take it from here:
“We’re gonna kick things off with a super casual reception, featuring fresh takes on classic holiday appetizers, such as cocktail meatballs, foie gras, devilled eggs, and much more, served alongside of bottles of the Brooklyn Lager. The sit-down portion features a mulled beet salad paired with Sorachi Ace, and a large plated holiday dinner containing roasted pig head, bacon sweet potato casserole, cranberry glaze, chestnut stuffing, crispy brussel sprouts and more, paired with Local 1. To finish, we’re gonna one-up Mom’s holiday sweets spread with chocolate cherry fruitcake with chocolate-filled prunes and candied pecans, served alongside of the Hand and Seal Barleywine. Your holiday party has never tasted so good.”

In the world of beer and food pairings, one of the simplest and most recognized is the classic beer and cheese. Just about everyone knows that for each beer there is a cheese and for each cheese there is a beer (or beers). We even run our own series of suggested pairings.
For our fifth Dinner Party on Thursday, November 13th, we’re collaborating with a producer we’ve long admired: Jasper Hill Farm. Jasper Hill is a working dairy farm with an on-site creamery in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Their operation is simple and hyper-local: six producers, six herds, twelve cheeses. Jasper Hill’s work isn’t finished once the cheeses are made, however. An underground aging facility maximizes the potential of cheeses made by their creamery, as well as those of other local creameries. Leftover whey from the cheesemaking process is fed to their heritage breed pigs, who roam the woodlands beyond the cows’ pasture. As you can see, the beautiful cheeses Jasper Hill both produces and finishes are one of the truest representations of terroir. Paired together with some of our best and brightest Brooklyn Brewery beer, this meal will fill your mind as well as your stomach with a greater appreciation of what dairy can do. You’ll leave ready to pair beer & cheese on your own.
Joining us for the evening is Monger Liaison Molly Browne. Molly honed her culinary skills in the lively Denver culinary scene, where she was introduced early (and often) to the excellent craft beer native to the Rocky Mountains. She’s a Certified Cheese Professional, former competitor in the Cheesemonger Invitational, and all-around cheese dynamo. Our own chef, Andrew Gerson, is all about keeping things playful as well as delicious. Between he and Molly, diners can expect each course to be an exploration into the wide world of dairy and cheese. Prepare for an adventure, caseophiles.
Tickets for this dinner are $85 and it’s not a huge room, so reserve yours quickly.
