In homage to the Beastie Boys and this great NYC craft beer revival, the Manchester Pub will be hosting a To The 5 Boroughs Beer Dinner on Thursday June 12, 2014. Breweries from each of the 5 boroughs will be represented throughout the evening alongside an NYC neighborhood specific menu created and prepared by Chef Matthew Garelick (Chef de Cuisine at New York Central of the Grand Hyatt Hotel). The dinner takes places in two grouped sessions – 6:30pm or 9:00pm. Reservations could be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through the evening, we will be touring the 5 boroughs through beer. We start in the Lower East Side of Manhattan with the Easy Blonde Alphabet City Brewing, before taking the subway deep into Brooklyn for some Mermaid Pilsner from Coney Island Brewing. We then go to Bronx Brewery for its Summer Pale Ale before journeying to Astoria, Queens for the Half Stack IPA from Singlecut Beer. We conclude by taking the ferry to Staten Island for the Dark Mild by Flagship Brewery.
Ch-Check Out Chef Matt’s preliminary menu below, which is an ode to each of the boroughs these breweries represent. You will enjoy courses such as The Hipster Dog representing Brooklyn and Wu-Tang Flan representing Staten Island. As we all grew up here in NYC, this dinner reflects our upbringing in this city that we love. And in honor of the Beasties, NYC hip hop will be played throughout the evening, with legends such as the Biggie, Jay-Z, Nas, and Chronikill featured on our dinner playlist. See the photos from our previous beer dinners here.
The price is $60 per person, plus tax and gratuity. RSVPs are highly recommended (as every previous beer dinner has sold out) and could be made by emailing email@example.com.
