Slow Beer

By Joe Ruvel · April 21st, 2012 · 4 Comments

When I started to really get into food while living in New York, Slow Food was a revelation. I was amazed that they cared that much about where their food came from and what was out there. It was so different then what I had known up to that point. Thankfully, the same idea goes real well with the Craft Beer industry. Slow Beer is coming up and is being put on by Slow Food. They are not only going to have a bunch of great breweries – but they will also have some great food.

We will be out of the country enjoying a bunch of Belgian brews during this fest, but we have Beer At Joes corespondents going and covering it. You should go too – great organization – great beer – why not. Let’s also not forget it is all for a good cause. Click on the picture to get tickets.

    What exactly is slow beer and slow food?

    it’s the slow down you feel after having too many beers and bbq. Nah really – the idea of slow food (possibly badly named) came out of Italy where they felt that good food takes more time. More time to cook, more time to grow, even more time to eat and enjoy (or at least deserves it). Pretty much the opposite of fast food. Slow beer – well beer that takes some time to make. Takes dedication of a lot of people – some risk from the brewer (or owner) and even sometimes a leap of faith from the drinker to try it. But yeah – overall just good flavorful beer to enjoy.
