In 2003, Brooklyn Brewery started selling beer in Denmark. Ten years later, Scandinavia is home to Brooklyn’s fastest growing fanbase. The Brewery’s involvement in the North hasn’t been limited to just sales. Our Brewmaster Garrett Oliver has done beer dinners at Noma, AG and American Table. We’ve produced two Brooklyn music and arts festivals in Stockholm, brewed collaborations at various Scandinavian breweries, and are in the process of building the New Carnegie Brewery, a joint venture with Sweden’s oldest trademark, Carnegie.
Thusly, it made perfect sense to get involved in New York City’s first Scandinavian food festival, NORTH. NORTH’s inaugural programming of unique dinner parties, collaborations and classes is seriously impressive. We’re getting hungry just thinking about it. Here’s where you’ll find Brooklyn Brewery throughout NORTH:
Aamans-Copenhagen Goes Helsinki, Oct 4th & 5th
Finnish chef Sasu Laukkonen of Chef & Sommelier and Carl Frederiksen of Aammans-Copenhagen cook alternating courses to compete for your tastebuds. Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett Oliver has paired beers to three of his favorite courses. Sorachi Ace, Ama Bruna, Greenmarket Wheat star. For full menu and tickets click here.
New York Goes Oslo, Oct 3rd & 4th
Fredrik Berselius’s nordic influences shine at Aska, across the street from The Brewery. For this mean, Garrett is sending beers that reflects Aska’s nordic roots, but also its focus on local collaboration. The exquisite menu will include Nordic collaborations of our own, including Carnegie Special 175th Anniversary Porter and our Sinebrychoff project, Two Tree Porter. This dinner is Sold Out.
Master Classes in New Nordic Cuisine, Oct 5th & 6th
