Beer and Art: EAT ART at Bitter & Esters with brewmaster John LaPolla and artist Eric Steen
Sunday, November 20
at Bitter & Esters
700 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
$65 includes pint of artist designed Heather Ale, beer brewing and history workshop, artist talk with Eric Steen and snacks made by the EAT ART team.
Come hang out with EAT ART 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.
Take a break from obsessing about beer long enough to chomp on some tasty fall-inspired snacks made by the EAT ART team.
