This week: Brooklyn Brewery Mash – food, film, music, beer

Brooklyn Brewery is packing it up and heading on the road for a sensory adventure; and they’re headed in our direction.

The Brooklyn Brewery Mash is an 11-city tour that lands Tuesday night in Philly. From Nov. 5 until Nov. 10, a number of pop up events – parties, comedy shows, live music, supperclubs and readings – are happening all over the city. The BBM is essentially an interactive tour of Brooklyn Brewery’s favorite food, music, live entertainment, literature and, of course, beer.
