From September 12th-20th, Scandinavia is coming to New York City for the second annual NORTH Nordic Food Festival. The festival will feature classes, demonstrations, pop-up restaurants, roundtable discussions, kitchen collaborations around the city, and more. You’ll be able to find Brooklyn Brewery beers across the festival, and we’ll be hosting a handful of events found below. These events will be the first time our sister brewery, Nya Carnegie’s beers are available on this side of the Atlantic, so don’t miss your only chance to try them outside of Sweden before the taps run dry.
Nordic Street Food Festival @ Brooklyn Brewery: Tasting stations throughout the brewery will feature samples of traditional Nordic street food, from fried herring to reindeer wraps. We’ll be pouring both Brooklyn Brewery and Nya Carnegie beers, so be sure to come give those new beers a warm welcome alongside some delicious samples.
Nya Carnegie Beer Dinner with Chefs Andrew Gerson and Billy White @ NORTH Festival Pop Up: Chef Andrew Gerson from Brooklyn Brewery and Chef Billy White of Nya Carnegie will come together at the NORTH Pop-Up space to recreate the menu found at the tasting room of Nya Carnegie in Stockholm. The beers of Nya Carnegie will take the spotlight as our chefs show off the food Chef White’s kitchen has designed to perfectly pair with each.
Nordic Hot Dog Championship @ Brooklyn Brewery: Nordic hot dog chefs both professional and amateur will come together to duke it out for eternal hot dog glory right here at the Brooklyn Brewery. Tickets include a sample of each entry, coffee, beer from Brooklyn Brewery and Nya Carnegie, and the chance to watch someone’s dreams come true.
