Chef Brian Alberg

Organized by Brian J. Alberg, Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director at The Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, the Beard House event will present the cuisine of six chefs working in the verdant Berkshire region today. This event marks Alberg’s eighth appearance at the Beard House. Alberg has been instrumental in galvanizing a Berkshire culinary movement – as a chef supporting local farms, as a farmer raising his own heritage breed pigs at his Bacon on the Side Farm, as a mentor for youth interested in culinary arts, and as a member of Berkshire Grown’s Board of Directors. According to Alberg, “this food pays homage to the farmer, producer and grower, as well as the animal itself. This is my way of giving thanks and showing respect to those who provide our food and drink by preparing their harvests and products with love, care and skill. The whole animal is used as not to minimize the importance of any part of it and it is joined and complimented by the bounty that our region offers.”
