What to eat at the Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest
TheÂ Hyper-Local Craft BrewfestÂ is coming up THIS weekend, and while there will be many great beers, ciders, and artisan drinks to quench your thirst let’s not forget about all the food that will be there as well!
Here are some of my favorite local vendors and restaurants that you will find this weekend at the event!
This small batchÂ companyÂ from Providence, RI handcrafts theirÂ own pickled vegetables. Â Ingredients are sourced from local farmers and they are proud to say their products are sugar free, fat free, naturally gluten free, and contain no additives. Their products are the perfect addition to any barbecue,Â antipasto platter, or even to top off a Bloody Mary! I think this will be such a tasty snack to pair with all of the beers and ciders to be tasted at theÂ Brewfest!
ThisÂ family-owned & operated artisan nut company was started byÂ husband and wife team, Beth and Brian â€œQâ€ Quinn in 2000 and each small batch is crafted using wholesome ingredients. All of theirÂ original recipes are vegan as well as gluten, soy and dairy free and use raw organic cane sugar, as well as organic chocolate, pure spices and natural ï¬‚avors in all of theirÂ roasts. They have an array of flavors including savory, sweet (Bananas Foster Pecans anyone??), and exotic (like Key Lime Ginger Almonds) and they continue to experiment and bring in new flavors to their product lineup.
This might just be the perfect snack to dig into while walking around theÂ Brewfest.
This hot sauce has the best name ever. This artisanal hot sauce is made using all-natural ingredients with unique combinations of flavor and heat that is sure to kick any of your favorite dishes up a notch. No matter whatÂ level of heatÂ you are looking for Alex’s Ugly Sauce has just the right match for you. This makes for Â a perfect take-home gift from theÂ Brewfest!
Koy is a fusion restaurant and bar located in Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall. With a menu that blends old-world Korean cuisine with fresh international flavors I am excited to see what they bring to theÂ BrewfestÂ – I hope it is their cheese steak dumplings with pastrami, swiss, Kimchi, and spicy mayo! Dine in at their restaurant located at 16 North Street, orderÂ deliveryÂ to dine at home, or set up catering for a special event and I guarantee theirÂ menuÂ won’t disappoint.
Serving exclusively vegetarian and vegan food since 2009 their menu is creative andÂ built around produce that is currently in season in New England and take pride the attention they pay toÂ special dietary needs. TheirÂ menuÂ offers gluten-free, raw, and macrobiotic selections and they even have special equipment for these menu offerings. Their dessert line is baked in-house to ensure freshness and includesÂ a wide range of vegan and gluten-free dessert choices.
Check them out at theÂ BrewfestÂ or head in for lunch and dinner Monday – Friday and brunch and dinner Saturday and Sunday!
