Things are beginning to heat up outside and the last thing anyone wants to think about is sparking up an oven to make a hot meal. Why not enjoy an entire feast of all cold food with ice cold beer in an air conditioned brewery instead? We’re not talking cold left over pizza (although, yum!); we’re talking The Big Chill, part of Edible’s Eat Drink Local Week and taking place on June 23 at the Brooklyn Brewery. Think oil poached leeks with mustard vinaigrette, tomato and wax bean salad, ice cold Brooklyn Summer Ale, ice cream sandwiches and a special treat from Salty Road to take home. Excited yet? Cool off at this casual cold-food feast offering a family-style menu and tons of good company. Tickets are $40.
