Film Feasts: Annie Hall (Woody Allen, 1977) | Tickets
The ultimate New York City romance, Annie Hall, gets the Film Feast treatment this week, which means our chefs got together with Brooklyn Brewery to put together a beer dinner inspired by the scenes picked by our cinema nerds. Scenes are paired with food which is then, in turn, paired with beers. There’s a lot of pairing going on, you see.
Below we’ve put together a little guide for the menu, which takes us from a neuroses inducing childhood to, just the worst pre-long drive conversation you could possibly imagine.
Coney Island Special
roasted tomato bisque, baked clams
Beer Pairing: Brooklyn Sorachi Ace
As Alvy Singer personally invites you to watch and examine the highs and lows of his relationships throughout his life, we’re taken on an insightful journey back to his childhood in Coney Island.
Dinner at Katz’s
pastrami, caraway sauerkraut, gruyere sauce, fingerling crisps
Beer Pairing: Winter is Coming
This moment finds Alvy and Annie during their first date. On their way to a New York Deli for dinner, Alvy suggests moving their first kiss ahead of the normal schedule all in the name of being able to digest their food better.
Duane’s Car Crash Beer Break
While in Chippewa Falls, Alvy has a slightly nervous first meeting with Annie’s family. Annie’s brother, Duane, calls Alvy into his bedroom after dinner to tell him about a private suicidal impulse that he feels while driving along the highway.

Beer Pairing: Brooklyn Monster Ale 2009
Discussing their upcoming trip to Los Angeles while spending an evening with some friends, Alvy is offered a “party favor” by the host and his inexperience in the situation causes him to commit a “party foul”.
