The Feed outings: Brooklyn premiere of Beer Wars and white burgundy tasting
Mon Jul 20 2009
Whether they prefer beer or wine says a lot about a person. Think long and hard before deciding which of these two events to go to tonight:
White burgundy tasting
News flash: Burgundy doesn't always have to be red. The proprietors of the Jakewalk and Smith & Vine wineshop prove the whites are just as worthy at this 15-bottle tasting. The vino—featuring rare white '04 burgs from domains like Coche Dury and Roulot—starts flowing at 7pm, but 50 bones buys entry to a pre-event seminar at 6pm as well. The Jakewalk, 282 Smith St at Sackett St, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn (718-243-2864, smithandvine.com). 7--9pm, $35.
Brooklyn premiere of Beer Wars
Who doesn't love a good underdog story? Root for the little guy at this screening of Beer Wars, which documents the clash between local breweries and big beer. A flight of four craft ales (from indie producers like Stone Brewing Co.) paired with Murray's cheeses will follow the flick. The Bell House, 149 7th St between Second and Third Aves, Gowanus, Brooklyn (718-643-6510, thebellhouseny.com). 8pm, $20.
