This past Wednesday (10/7) The Brooklyn Brewery hosted The Edible Oktoberfest Feast in their tasting room. Three hours of all you can eat and drink. There was so much good food and great Brooklyn Brewery beer flowing. Within the first hour I was already stuffed.
The meal started off with pierogies made by Casey Barber, author of Pierogi Love: New Takes on an Old-World Comfort Food.
Over near the taps on the bar was a plate full of pickles and black forest ham. Perfect for a quick bite right after ordering a beer.
Astor Center’s Executive Chef Emily Petersen cooked up a lovely assortment of Bavarian dishes for the evening. Every table was full of German potato salad with bacon, sauerkraut with apples, cucumber salad, radishes with salt, and plenty of bread and butter.
For the main course, Chef Petersen grilled up an assortment of four different kinds of wurst: Weisswurst, Bratwurst, Bockwurst, and Baurenwurst. The accompany the meats, there were three different types of mustard.
For dessert the guest were treated to a delicious apple and cranberry strudel with vanilla sauce. A perfect dessert that wasn’t too heavy after eating all that meat and potatoes.
I had a wonderful time at this event. One can never go wrong with all you can eat and drink for $45. Cheers!
