    Much Love for the Local
A comprehensive article by Curator about the establishment that I have been lucky enough to spend my past year working at. Thanks to my fabulous co-workers, our amazing producers, and patrons (well, most of the patons…you know who you are) for making 61 Local a great spot to be.

    It’s the first of the month!

    And this month is the FIRST meet your  taste-bud-guru event @61local. This Wednesday, you can get get your beer and cheese on. Later tastings will include meats, brines, and ice creams. So go cash your checks and purchase your tickets while they’re still hot. Or while you’re still hot…

    PS I guarantee it will be as much fun as the party in this video.

    Congratulations, You’ve Been Kissed By a Dragon!

    Thanks everyone who came by to taste my beer last night. I learned how fun it is to have a beer on tap that you made, and to share it with great people. Still learning on how to not be a nervous wreck before hand…

    Extracurricular Libation: Dragon Kiss
In honor of Chinese New Year, and paying homage to a Jet Li movie - this chocolate-lavendar-pouter is now fermenting. Should it taste like Dragonballz in two weeks, then it will be quietly poured down the drain (shhhh). If not, you will have an opportunity to drink it at 61 Local’s homebrew event hosted by Yelp.
In other big news: my brew pot takes up the entire stove. NBD.

    Cut The Cheese
Beer and cheese, they’re two best buddies like PB&J or zebras & stripes. Point being, in case you forgot to class-up your superbowl party with cheese there’s still time to class up your palate (it probably needs it after all those buffalo wings you ate last night). Here’s a fun tool to help you with beer and cheese tasting at home - just choose your beer and see what it pairs with! The best part - you probably never knew that processed cheese food paired well with so many beers (duh). Thanks Wisconsin Cheese for sharing this often under rated pairing with us!
And what happens when beer and cheese become one? Well, that’s we call cheese washed beer. It’s dank. Want to try it? Well you’re in luck, because there’s still tickets to 61 Local’s beer washed cheese tasting, hosted by Saxelby cheesemongers, this Wednesday Feb 8. You can still get tickets online.

    Cinema Beeradiso Ale

    Lucky for us Brooklynites, we have the chance to contribute to different efforts, organize our own events, and have fun doing it. One recent completion includes Matt Finlin’s Below New York, which is now being entered into film festivals.  And give a special thanks to his local supporters who helped financed the film, he will be hosting a private screening at 61 local. Local films, local spot….but it gets better. Each guest will be served 1 glass of a limited edition, special stock, hipster homebrew better known as “Cinema Beeradiso.” Here’s the skinny on the skinny-jeans ale:

    Through beer networking  at 61 Local, I was asked to brew 5 gallons for a screening by our new friend Gabriel Rhoads. He mentioned he features a lot of movies shot by young hip film makers and wanted a beer to reflect their nature. Hate to type cast people, I just imagined bearded Hipsters, wearing  skinny jeans and sporting neon sun glasses while swilling on cans of Pabst’s Blue Ribbon! I believe PBR is a lager which I can not produce, but I did opt to brew Jamil’s Cream Ale out of Brewing Classic Styles, I just made a few hop substitutions. For the most part the beer goes against most of what I stand for in brewing. This beer will be ridiculously blond and will only have 1.5 ounces of hops, oh and it will have an adjunct, maze!

    Also as an ode to one of my favorite hipsters, Dan Pizzillo, I am also using dry yeast for the first time and fermenting in a bucket!

    I would like to encourage all of those who will be in attendance to wear your best wool tweed suits, just to play a friendly joke on our brew master :) If you are interested in trying this beer yourself, you can find the recipe (as well as many others) here.  If you aren’t on the RSVP list for the screening, I encourage you to join us anyways - meet the film maker, the beer maker, and the event coordinator amongst a friendly crowd and great local suds. March 24th, 7-9 pm.

    See you there.

    Sidenote: This event was coordinated by BBQ Films. Follow them on Tumblr for other great brew-and-view events coming to us during the warmer months.

    I’m very much looking forward to going here.

    brewyork:

    In an unsuspecting facade on a quiet Brooklyn street, 61 Local is an understated spot with huge potential.

    “Local” has become a buzz word lately. In some cases, it’s been overused. Yes, the locavore movement has certainly made us more aware of the source of our food, but when it comes to…
