Monday, The Bruery’s Tasting Room comes to New York
In our quest to visit 100 different breweries this year (as of this writing, we’re at 89), one really stands out: Orange County, California’s The Bruery. The tasting room features over two dozen draft lines pouring beers we’re familiar with, unique variations on their standard offerings, and beers we never knew existed. A visit is mind-bending even for the biggest fans of this brewery. But if you live in New York, your only chance to experience this was to travel 2,500 miles to the West Coast… until next Monday.
Win Tickets to Brooklyn Pour on September 27th, Then Come to Our Party Afterwards
We’ve had a lot of great beer-filled Saturdays before, but few Saturdays have both a beer festival and a celebration of our little site. On Saturday, September 27th, Brooklyn Pour returns to Skylight One Hanson for an afternoon session of one of the city’s longest-running craft beer festivals. Later that day, we here at Brew York celebrate this site’s fifth anniversary with a little shindig at One Mile House (10 Delancey St., at Bowery, Lower East Side).
You don’t need tickets to come to our party, but you will need to buy some for Brooklyn Pour - unless you win them from us. We’re giving away a pair of General Admission tickets to the festival, and all you have to do is enter for a chance to win.
New Brews: A California Import and Canadian Invasion
Time for another edition of New Brews, where we tell you about the new beers arriving on draft lines and beer store shelves around the city. In this edition, we’ll tell you about the new offerings available from three new-to-NYC breweries, including another new California brewery and a few from north of the border.
NYC Brewers Guild to rock the block off at “Blocktoberfest”
This block may not look like much now, but come September 20th, it’ll be full of beer and revelry. The New York City Brewers Guild will hold their first-ever block party, a fundraiser for the Guild and New York City Beer Week, on Saturday, September 20th. And it’s on a block that already sees lots of beer: the block of Waverly Avenue between Atlantic Avenue and Fulton Street in Clinton Hill that houses KelSo Beer Company. It’s called “Blocktoberfest,” and it’ll be one of your last times to enjoy a great local beer outside before it cools off.
