If you weren’t at 82Mercer last Tuesday, bummer. You missed out on some seriously good beer and food.
More than 30 breweries and 30 food makers wowed us with their offerings, which ran the gamut from rich meat dishes like the chicken gizzard and lamb bacon kebab from Mile End Delicatessen to light snacks like Vermont maple and sea salt popcorn from Quinn Popcorn. There was seafood, too, like spicy avocado soup with pickled squid from Almond and tasty mini Maine shrimp rolls from Luke’s Lobster. And, oh, the beer. We loved Blue Point Brewing Company‘s White IPA and Lagunitas Brewing Company‘s Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’, plus many more too numerous to name. And for the less ale-inclined, there were spirits, coffee, ginger beer and ginger ale thrown in for good measure.
Thank you to all of our vendors, sponsors, The Good Beer Seal, Brooklyn Brewery, Stella Artois, Whole Foods Market, New York Cider Week, Perrier and Verterra and guests for another incredible evening. Check out the slideshow for some highlights of the fun.
