Craft Beer Jam: Pairing Beer and Food

Craft Beer Jam

Monday July 15 2024 • 10:40pm - 10:40pm ET

Brendan Woodcock, certified cicerone and host at Luksus @ Tørst, and Jimmy Carbone, owner of Jimmy's No. 43

Our fourth annual Craft Beer Jam came to a close July 23, 2014 with a tasting and conversation on the principals behind good food and beer pairing.

More restaurants are creating tasting menus that pair with beer instead of just wine, even hiring “beer sommeliers” to craft a great beer list. Host Jimmy Carbone of the internet radio show “Beer Sessions Radio” sat down with a panel of experts to get their perfect matches and teach us how to think about pairing on our own. Featuring Brendan Woodcock from Luksus At Tørst in Brooklyn; Augie Carton from New Jersey’s Carton Brewing; Christian Pappanicholas from The Cannibal in Midtown; and B.R. Rolya of Shelton Brothers in Massachusetts; and music by Brooklyn roots revivalist band Victor V. Gurbo & Co.

Watch: Brendan Woodcock and Daniel Burns of the beer bar Torst and restaurant Luksus in Greenpoint give us the best beers to pair with your daily food.
