Slow Food Charleston, whose mission is "Good, Clean, Fair food for all," is toasting 15 years of work as a Slow Food chapter in the Lowcountry with a celebration on October 24th from 6 pm to 9 pm at Tradesman Brewing Company.
The non-profit has collaborated with Tradesman Brewing on an amber ale, which will be premiered at the anniversary celebration, using the Ark of Taste ingredients Seashore Black Rye and traditional sorghum syrup. Ingredient donations were generously provided by chapter supporters Anson Mills and High Wire Distilling.
The celebration will coincide with a Lowcountry boil. Patrons pay $20 at the door for a wristband to enjoy supper, prepared by the Darling Oyster Bar utilizing ingredients, provided in part by Lowcountry Street Grocery and Halpern’s. Plus, $1 from every pint sold will go to Slow Food Charleston.
“I’m proud to lead the chapter as it celebrates 15 years.” Carrie Larson, the chapter’s Board Chair, said. “We continue to grow and always appreciate the support of the community for allowing us to advance the mission for Good, Clean, Fair food for all. We are here today thanks to founders Mike Lata, Celeste Albers, Matt McIntosh and Ricky Hacker, and the dozens of board member and project volunteers who have contributed to the chapter's efforts of improving our foodshed.”
