This week it's been all about beer news, free ice cream, and Oprah's triumphant foray into the prepared food world. From Blue Point Brewery's Penn Station debut of their "Summer of Hell" inspired beer, to Uber's free ice cream delivery day, we have all the food news you missed!
It's finally here, the long rumored prepared foods line by the one and only Oprah! Don't act like you're not interested. The Kraft Heinz-produced line is called “O, That’s Good” and consists of eight refrigerated “comfort foods”. They retail for $4.49 to $4.99 and 10 percent of the profits go to hunger-relief orgs.
BrewDog at their BrewDog-giest, proposes to build a bar that straddles the US-Mexico border. Why? To “Make beer, not walls.” Co-founder James Watt said in a press release that it would be “more difficult” to build a wall “if there’s a BrewDog bar in the way.” Insensitive or appropriatly attention grabbing? It's your call.
As New Yorkers know all too well, this season will go down in history as the "summer of hell" with LIRR, NJ Transit, and MTA delays and cancellations leaving travellers roasting underground or stranded in midtown for hours. Blue Point Brewery has taken a negative and made it a positive by debuting their "Delayed Pilsner", at Penn Station for commuters to sip on while they wait.
