I've always been a fan of the beers from Brooklyn Brewery, especially during my New York days - not only are they tasty but my inner marketing and PR nerd thinks their branding is pretty well done too. I joined Dinner Lab a few months ago but hadn't yet signed up for a dinner due to annoying real life scheduling commitments (like that little thing called “work”, which I do in order to pay “rent” – all so tedious.) For the uninitiated, Dinner Lab is a kind of private dining club where the organizers bring together up and coming chefs and a group of diners at unorthodox dining venues (ours took place in an industrial warehouse of some kind in Northeast DC.)
When I saw that Dinner Lab would be hosting their next dinner in DC in partnership with Brooklyn Brewery, I decided to give it a shot. Armed with copious amounts of wine, cocktails and beer (duh) that was available, my friend Tiffany (who kindly supplied some of the pictures below) and I jumped into the fray:
The verdict? A pretty hit or miss experience.
One woman's journey to eat all the food. Or at least, most of it.
