Here at 2 Cooks we have lots of interests, but many of them fall under the major categories of: art, eating and drinking, and connecting with people through meaningful conversation. Driven by these interests Tracy Candido and I have put together the next installment of our new, socially-engaged happening EAT ART on Sunday, November 20th to bring them all together.
We cordially invite you to come hang out with at an event all about beer: drinking, brewing, its history and as art. At Bitter & Esters, a new home brew shop in Prospect Heights in Brooklyn, we’ll learn all about beer from Bitter & Esters’ main dude, co-owner John LaPolla, and Colorado Springs-based artist Eric Steen, who uses beer as a medium to explore the social aspects of community drinking.
Sip on a Heather Ale designed by Eric and learn how to brew some yourself while talking about home beer brewing, beer history, ingredients like hops, yeast and special ingredients like heather, and beer styles. Eric will talk about his preoccupation with art and beer, as well as his current project, “Brew Pub” at the 2011 Performa festival and previous projects such as “Art & Beer” at the Portland Art Museum and “Pub School” at the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art.
Then take a break from obsessing about beer long enough to chomp on some tasty fall-inspired snacks made by the EAT ART team. Join us! Add some more beer and art to your life. Tickets are $65 and include pint of artist designed Heather Ale, beer brewing and history workshop, artist talk with Eric Steen and snacks made by the EAT ART team. You can purchase tickets here. Hope you will come raise a glass (of beer you learned to make) with us!
