Beer, tacos, Ghost Bottles and homebrew. Need we say more? Brewmaster Garrett Oliver will be in France to share a few of our favorite things from March 9-12 during his visit to Omnivore in Paris. The Omnivore World Tour visits cities around the world in search of new and innovative chefs and restaurateurs and uses the festival to share their ideas and accomplishments with the public. Brooklyn Brewery will be pouring free tastings of some of our favorite regular and limited release beers throughout the festival, including Brooklyn Lager, Sorachi Ace, Quadraceratops, Local 1, Local 2, Hand & Seal, Black Ops, 1/2 Ale and Blast!
Garrett and the Brooklyn Brewery will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Omnivore festival at OMNIVORIOUS, hosted at Pavillon de l’Arsenal on Monday, March 9 at 8PM. Come out and enjoy live music and Brooklyn Brewery beers paired with appetizers prepared before you by a dozen chefs. We’ll be pouring Brooklyn Lager, Sorachi Ace, Wild Horse Porter and Blast! all night.
After wishing Omnivore a happy tenth, sign up for Garrett’s master class at Maison de la Mutualité on Tuesday, March 10 at 4:15PM for a discussion on modern brewing and a tasting of some rare and exciting beers from the Brooklyn cellars. Garrett will be pouring K is for Kriek, Quadraceratops, Sorachi Ace, Black Ops, Wild Horse Porter and Blast!
Omnivore passes are required for entry into this event.
The festivities will continue on Wednesday March 11th from 7:30PM to 12AM for a very special Ghost Bottle Night at Deck & Donohue, who will be celebrating their first anniversary with an array of their beers. Garrett will compliment the night’s festive spirit by hosting a guided tasting of some of the strange, rare and experimental beers that haunt the furthest reaches of the Brooklyn cellars while Candelaria keeps everyone supplied with fresh tacos.
On Thursday, March 12 at 11AM, Brewmaster and Cheesemaster join forces in a collaborative beer and cheese pairing at Allen’s Market. During this in-depth event, Garrett and Laurent Bouvet of Laurent Bouvet Fromagerie will walk you through each pairing and discuss the background and flavor profile of each cheese. With five beers and ten cheeses this is sure to be a delicious and educational experience.
After tasting beer all week, why not brew it? Beer enthusiasts and brewers of all levels are welcome to visit the soon-to-be-open home brew shop, Brew Unique on Thursday, March 12 at 2PM to brew a special saison with Garrett Oliver. Ask the brewmaster all your beer-related questions while sampling a few legendary Ghost Bottles kept under lock and key by Garrett himself, including Wild Horse Porter, Crochet Rouge Sauv Blanc, barrel-aged Wild Horse, Gawain, Hand & Seal finished in Cognac barrels and K is for Kriek.
