1001 Nights: Introducing Brooklyn Brewery's Latest Beer

When: Wednesday, July 10, 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Price: $20 | $15 for Museum Members

Get the inside story -- and an exclusive first taste -- of Brooklyn Brewery's latest beer.

Legendary Brooklyn Brewery brew master Garrett Oliver and intrepid spice hunter Ethan Frisch, co-founder of the single origin spice company Burlap & Barrel, introduce 1001 Nights, the bold new Brooklyn Brewery beer they’ve just collaborated on using Burlap & Barrel spices. In an unusual twist inspired by Middle Eastern flavors, 1001 Nights is infused with ground black lime and cardamom from the cloud forests of Guatemala. To kick off the evening, Oliver and Frisch will sit down with Edible Manhattan’s editor-in-chief Ariel Lauren Wilson for a conversation about their work roaming the globe looking for inspiration and the world’s most incredible spices.

Afterwards, we invite you to try 1001 Nights for yourself at an outdoor tasting on the Museum’s Terrace overlooking Central Park. A surprise, "unexpected" bite from another venerated institution, Amy's Bread, will also be served.
