Did you think that a backyard seafood cookout, where red and white checkered plastic tablecloths drape over picnic tables laden with lobster crackers and bowls of drawn butter were the only setting for steamed clams? Yeah, me too. On Thursday, July 25, Carton Brewing invades the taps at 61 Local to prove us narrow-minded quaffers wrong (RSVP here). The gentlemen at the helm of this independent, Atlantic Highlands, N.J. brewing company will be on hand with their standby brews and latest creations–including Digger, a summer ale inspired by the local New Jersey fishing industry–along with some seasonal seafood snacks to complement the suds. Digger brings the flavors of salty steamers and tangy lemongrass to your tastebuds; this is a small batch beer that won’t outlive the summer heat, so grab a pint before it’s gone.
