Tom Shillue’s Funny Story @ Brooklyn Brewery


It’s becoming a tradition here at the brewery to spend one night each month guffawing at Tom Shillue and his cohort of expert storytellers. Tom, if you don’t already know, is a master tale spinner and each month he and our partners, Brooklyn Based put together a program of great, true stories from various raconteurs and call it “Tom Shillue’s Funny Story.” The show has been a hit so far, and for $10 (including a beer), it’s a real bargain too. Join us on Thursday, December 18th at 8pm for laughs and good times.

The holiday inspired stories will include offerings from:
Cory Kahaney from the Late Show with David Letterman
Marla Schultz from Girls Behaving Badly and Comics Unleashed
Jerry Portwood writer and executive editor of Out magazine
And more…

Ugly Sweater Holiday Party w. Brooklyn Brewery @ Dooby’s (MD)

Ugly Sweater

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.”
