It is a sausage fest — literally.

New Bushwick beer hall and barbecue joint Arrogant Swine is throwing an event called Winter’s Grind on Feb. 28, where local chefs will gather to crank out all-you-can-eat franks by hand, while local brewers serve up hearty beers. The event organizer said it is the restaurant’s remedy to the cold weather blues.

“What could be more fun than 24 beers to try and sausages and standing around telling dick jokes all afternoon?” said Tyson Ho, the pitmaster at the Morgan Avenue meat-ery.

Chefs from restaurants including Fritzl’s Lunch Box in Bushwick, Pizza Loves Emily in Clinton Hill, and pop-up eatery Kimchi Smoke will get in on the sausage-stuffing action, with each serving up their own recipes, such as oak-smoked bratwurst, Italian salsiccia, and even a vegetarian sausage. Ho said he plans to make northern Thai turkey and chicken tikka masala varieties.

“The idea is to make sausages that reflect what a restaurant does, even if they do not make actual sausages,” said Ho.

To wash down the wieners, home-brew fanatic Joshua Bernstein, who runs tours of brew-masters’ homes, has selected nine of his favorite fellow home-brewers from around the city to make appropriately wintery brews for the occasion. More suds will also come from commercial craft breweries, including Brooklyn’s own Greenpoint Beer and Ale, Other Half, and Threes Brewing.

And because beer and bangers are meant to be consumed al fresco, Arrogant Swine will fill its patio with heat lamps, so you can grill out and chill out without icing over.

Winter’s Grind at Arrogant Swine [173 Morgan Ave. at Scholes Street in Bushwick, (718) 791–3842,]. Feb. 28 at 1 pm. $45.
