Whole Foods Bowery: Cheese Cave out, Brinery in

small h | Sep 13, 201106:19 PM

Whole Foods Bowery replaced their priced-by-the-milligram super-fancy cheese cave with a more recession-friendly pickle section, the Brinery. It opened tonight, and four pickle vendors (Rick's Picks, Brooklyn Brine, Sourpuss and McClure's) set up tables and offered samples. Sprout Creek Farm was also on hand with cheeses. And Captain Lawrence Brewing Company not only had three beers to taste, but also gave out free pint glasses! I was there too, naturally, since pickles, cheese and beer are three of my major food groups. I was most impressed with Rick's beets, Sourpuss' okra and classic cucumber pickles, and Brooklyn Brine's Damn Spicy pickles. Captain Lawrence's IPA and Sprout Creek's Eden and Sophie cheese were my non-pickle favorites. Here are some pictures of the scene:
