This weekend starts the annual celebration of beer in the five boroughs - New York City Beer Week! We've got some special events planned to celebrate!
First up, tonight at 5:00 we're tapping one of the first kegs of Staten Island's own Flagship Brewing's new Double IPA, License to Illo! Dry, hoppy, and a sticky 9.4%, we're pretty stoked to get a pint of this in us to start our beer week off right! We're tapping this one on Friday afternoon at 5:00!
Next up, on Tuesday February 23, we're tapping three variants of Ballast Point Brewing's superb imperial porter, Victory at Sea, for one night only!
This is a pretty rare chance to try three variants side by side--one keg with mint, one with coconut, and one with peanut butter! We're offering a five-ounce pour of each for one night only, and then will run the back to back after that. Tuesday is your only chance to try them side by side...don't miss out!
Check out the website for the New York City Brewer's Guild for more information on NYC Beer Week. They also have a pretty great app for all the events that are happening city wide--look for it on the App Store or Google Play!
