Drop in for a Pickle Party and a Sweet Sale!
Drop in to Eastern District this Saturday, February 4 between 4-6PM for a pickle party. Brooklyn Brine will be here to sample their great range of pickles and all-new special sauce. We’ll also be sampling out some other surprise goodies that will be perfect for your Super Bowl party on Sunday.
Some customers have been sad to see the creamy goat & cow milk Boxcarr Cheese Cottonseed disappear (temporarily!) Goats don’t produce much milk in the wintertime, when they’re usually pregnant for the spring kidding season, so many smaller producers like Boxcarr focus on cow milk cheeses in the colder months. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Boxcarr has delivered Cottonbell Hearts, cow-milk cousins to the Cottonseed. Similarly luscious and creamy, the Cottonbell is a little sweeter and milder – and it’s heart-shaped, perfect for a special date night or party.
Although it’s not a good time of year for young goat cheeses, it’s a great time for hearty Alpine styles. Meadow Creek Mountaineer is semi-firm, with sweet notes of grass and butter that deepen into meaty, caramelized onion flavors. It melts wonderfully for raclette, fondue, or baked potatoes – but also works great on a ham sandwich or just a simple whole grain cracker.
In the beer department, we’re excited about the brand new cans of Bring The Noise double IPA from Interboro. It’s a rare occasion when we can get cans from one of Brooklyn’s best new breweries, and this batch is citrusy and spicy with a strong malt backbone.
If you’re looking for a beer to pair with the Cottonbell Heart cheese, we recommend Deux Amis, a collaboration between Belgium’s Brasserie Dupont and California’s Lost Abbey. It’s an effervescent saison, crisp and refreshing, with complex floral and fruity aromas.
Or try it with Kent Falls Bewilderment, an imperial IPA from Connecticut that features brettanomyces yeast for a savory, tart and spicy finish.
We have a Valentine’s Day gift to you: 25% off all Nunu Chocolates, Chocolat Moderne, and Dana Confections, now through February 14!
We also have a fresh batch of hand-printed Valentine’s cards in stock. Can you guess which one’s our favorite? :)
HAPPY SUPER BOWL SUNDAY and HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
