Alongside the craft beer boom over the past couple of years, barbecue seems to be getting more and more attention in New York City, but the whole hog barbecues are still a rarity. On Saturday August 17th both will be together when John Brown Smokehouse and Arrogant Swine present a North Carolina Whole Hog barbecue alongside beer from Founders Brewing. The hog comes from Tamarack Hollow Farm in Vermont. There is currently no published beer list but Founders has a line up that would be great with some barbecue on a summer day.
There are two sessions at 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. of four hours each with tickets at $44.23. For an extra $10 you can get started 45 minutes early in the VIP Session. The event will be held at 27-20 40th Avenue in Long Island City Queens.
