Food and Beer in Bushwick
Food & Beer
It’s not just a beverage: beer can be used as an ingredient in cooking, and can add a deep flavor and richness to dishes. Use it to make hearty soups and stews, add a kick to sauces and marinades, steam seafood and vegetables, or drizzle over desserts and fruit. It’s a flexible cooking tool that can also elevate your bar or restaurant’s beer menu with unique pairings and a new perspective on cooking.
Beer is made with malted grains, hops, and yeast. These ingredients are often complemented with spices, fruits, and chemical flavorings to create many different types of beers. The flavor and mouthfeel of a beer is influenced by its malt content. Beers that have a heavier, more intense malt presence are generally sweeter, while beers with less malt are often dry and bitter.
The first brick-and-mortar brewery to open in Bushwick since the 1980s, KCBC is a 5,000-square-foot brewery and taproom that serves up hazy, milky, dark, tart, and piney brews, plus a rotating lineup of local collaborations. It’s a must-visit for any craft beer lover.
Meat Hook’s short-lived sandwich shop got a second life as a partnership with Gowanus’ Threes Brewing in 2016. Now you can sample a revolving selection of dank IPAs, crisp German lagers, funky farmhouse ales, and more in this gorgeous space, while eating Argentinian choripan or hot chicken fried in spicy duck fat.
