I first visited Malt and Mold
, a Lilliputian outpost of foodie, beery goodness on the Lower East Side, last summer. I was stopping by to congratulate my friend, Kevin Heald, on his new store. He proudly showed me his goods (food-wise), and cut me up some delicious salami, spread local butter on crusty bread for me, and gave me a little taste of what he had on tap. Just because I'm an oenophile, doesn't mean I can't love beer, too. And, I swear, I was going to blog about how cool it all was, but a year of life got in the way.
But lo and behold, that gave me the perfect opportunity to congratulate Kevin on his one year anniversary! So, I entreat you, dear readers, to head south to 221 East Broadway (at Clinton St.) for their one year anniversary/tasting extravaganza/live music-filled celebration Saturday. It promises to be an afternoon of delicious fun, including Free Beer Tasting by Goose Island including:
Imperial India Pale Ale
Minx (Belgian India Pale Ale)
Matilda (Belgian Pale Ale)
Sofie (Belgian Farmhouse Ale - aged in wine barrels - a Malt & Mold customer favorite!)
Pere Jacques (Belgian Trappist style Ale)
Bourbon County Stout (Possibly the finest beer in America)
If you can't make it tomorrow, stop by any time for artisan cheeses, breads, spreads, salamis, and bring your growler to fill. And, when you go, tell Kevin Diane sent you.
