More Tomato Mania
Springs Brewery has a new beer celebrating the tomato, if not exactly using it in its creation. Called the Meat of the Tomato, it honors a saying of Clay Pigeon, a WFMU D.J., "meaning salt of the earth/really great," according to Lindsay Reichart, one of the brewery's founders. "It felt like a timely celebration of tomato season!"
This weekend, you can find the beer (a pale ale made with Sagaponack malt grown at Foster Farm) at the Springs Farmers Market and at Sagaponack Distillery, which is having its own tomato celebration with heirloom tomato sandwiches, tomato martinis with Monte’s tomato juice, Bloody Marys, and more.
Next Thursday, the brewery will be at the Beach Hut at East Hampton's Main Beach for a burger and beer night, with draft beer and other specials from 5 to 7 p.m.
