The Brooklyn Brewery Mash, the nation’s largest travelling food & arts festival, is hitting 12 cities this year, starting off in Nashville, next week. Now in its second year, The Mash aims to present some of our favorite chefs, bands, comics, writers and, of course beer, in some of the most interesting places in the country (and two cities outside of the country). Whether from Brooklyn, Stockholm or Miami, our goal is to celebrate emerging talent.

NEW ORLEANS, LA: March 30 – April 5
CHICAGO, IL: April 27 – May 3
STOCKHOLM, SWE: May 18 – 24
WASHINGTON, DC: June 1 – 7

This year we’ll have a full week of programming in each city. From presenting pop-up dinners in surprising locations with the best chefs and locally sourced ingredients, to a round table discussion on the growth and future of craft beer, The Mash attempts to bring you the best of what’s next on the cultural horizon.
Joining us on the road is Brooklyn Brewery Co-founder and President, Steve Hindy. Steve’s new book, Craft Beer Revolution, examines the rise of craft beer culture with the stories from the men and women who made it happen. There will be a panel discussions (paired w/local beer) with unfettered access to the insights and stories that only the leaders of this industry can provide.
Slow Super with Dinner Lab will be held at a surprise location with setting and music provided by local artists. Dinner Lab has quickly become the fastest growing members-only pop-up dinner club, and since we partnered with them for our Slow Supper in New Orleans, we’ve looked forward to every secret adventure they produce. Now we’re combining forces to present an evening of delicacy and delights, each one paired with a different Brooklyn beer.
Being stuck in the concrete jungle all year, Dinner on the Farm has to be one of our favorite concepts. Their focus is to create unique local food experiences designed to celebrate farms, chefs, breweries, and food entrepreneurs dedicated to good, sustainable food. And there’s no better feeling than watching a rusty sunset after a full meal with beer pairings.
Here in Brooklyn we’ve become a comedy mecca as the writers and comedians from your favorite shows have migrated from across the river to call Kings County home sweet home. At Brooklyn HA HA we’ll have the freshest faces of Brooklyn’s comedy scene pair up with local favorites, to tickle your funny bones. All of them. Them bones.
Mash Bash, our closing party, presents exciting local acts with some of Brooklyn’s young rock luminaries. We’ll have a food truck stationed outside and some local vendors inside to feature artisans of all industries. It’s like a very small, very cool music festival, except the beer will be cheaper and there will be no port-o-potties.
We’re doing an apparel collaboration in every city, starting off with imogene + willie in Nashville. We wanted to combine forces with manufacturers and brands in each city that represent more than just mass-produced merch. We support local businesses and it doesn’t hurt to look a tad cooler in the process.
