5 Beers That Are Perfect for a Super Bowl Pork Fest

Over the weekend, Dan Barber’s iconic Blue Hill at Stone Barns hosted its ninth annual Sausage & Beer dinner in a former Rockefeller estate hayloft that now resembles Hogwarts on the Hudson. The over-the-top event celebrated locally and humanely raised pork on a blockbuster scale. For the first time in the series’ history, pork whisperer Adam Kaye teamed up with a guest chef, the amazing Matt Jennings of Providence’s Farmstead Restaurant. There was pastrami-spiced pork loin and pig’s head corn dogs as well as pork accompaniments ranging from honey-whipped lardo to crunchy pig’s skin “Cheetos.” And the brews! Here, a rundown of the fantastic local beers served that night. Look for the labels while stocking up for your Super Bowl party and it will almost make up for not having porky “Cheetos” on the menu.—Phil Whitney
