Devil’s Backbone Brewery Hosts Rooftop Campsite in the City

What happens when camping meets NYC? A night under the stars, on the magnificent rooftop at Hudson Mercantile with views overlooking the Empire State Building and New Yorker Hotel!

For a recent promotional event, Virginia-based brewing company Devil’s Backbone reached out to AK to put together a memorable “Campsite in the City” themed event set on a rooftop in the heart of Manhattan. And what made it even more fun? It was a 5-course beer pairing dinner! The custom menu including everything from Short Rib & Sweet Potato Mash in mason jars to complement their Vienna brew, to Herbed Chicken & Waffles with a bourbon maple hot sauce glaze to enhance their Eight Point IPA. We even created a s’mores station with spiked drizzles and a variety of dusts to pair with their Cocoa Beer.

It was an evening of great beer, food, music and some pretty epic “campsite” views!
