Description
 
At the turn of the 20th century, a significant portion of our nation’s beer was brewed in Brooklyn. In fact, one block of Williamsburg alone housed eleven breweries. When the last of the Brooklyn breweries turned off its taps in 1976, what followed was a dry spell of local beer production until in 1996 Brooklyn Brewery set up shop. The once upstart brewery now produces roughly 300,000 barrels annually and is ranked the 12th-largest craft brewery in the United States. Ben Plotkin, local representative for Brooklyn Brewery, returns to COOK for a beer pairing dinner, along with Michael Vincent Ferreri of Res Ipsa. Located on the 2200 block of Walnut Street, Res Ipsa operates as a cafe during the day and in the evening changes over to a full-service restaurant. Res Ipsa Chef Michael Vincent Ferreri’s menu is not only influenced by his own Italian roots but also by his time working at Zeppoli, Chef Joey Baldino’s beloved Sicilian-inspired BYOB. Join Plotkin and Ferreri for a four-course beer pairing menu of chicken liver mousse with sourdough, apple and pickles, paired with Brooklyn Lager; spicy wild boar ragu with orecchiette, paired with Brooklyn IPA; braised rabbit with beans and greens, paired with Brooklyn Sorachi Ace; and chocolate mousse with coconut and almonds, paired with Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.
