Bristol will feed your face, then pick your brain

When Bristol Brewing Co. moves across the street into the Ivywild Elementary School, not only will its brewing facilities see an increase in size, but so will its menu. And you get to help it grow.

Since June 6, and every two weeks hence, the brewery has been hosting "Food for Thought" tasting sessions to nail down some menu staples for its future space. Monday night, Blue Star chef Daniel Gerson dished braised Laughing Lab wings that fell into tender pieces; shrimp ceviche with a smoked salmon mousse; and an herbal pretzel with smoked Gouda, pickled summer squash and caramelized onion mustard.

Not everything felt ready — the wings were tender as hell, but relatively tame flavor-wise — but that's what you get to do: pass on feedback. Tastings are $20, with a beer pairing per course included. Consider making a reservation for the next one, on July 11.
