The second annual Brooklyn Pour comes to One Hanson Place this Saturday, giving beer nerds the chance to taste more than 100 different craft brews from Brooklyn, New York State, and beyond. Just to make sure we didn’t end up drinking all 100 beers, we asked Brooklyn Pour event director Rosemary Jorda what not to miss.
What beers are you most excited to taste at this year’s Brooklyn Pour?
The Bronx Brewery’s Rye Pale Ale. I haven’t been able to sample this new local brewer’s beer yet and I’m excited to try their newest offering. Since their beer is brewed in limited batches, it makes it more exciting to try. This ale mixes a little spice with some floral tones so should be tasty!
Local Kingston NY’s Keegan Ales is bringing their Black Eye P.A.. Love the name (EYE-P-A) and this I.P.A. has a chocolatey malty flavor, also brewed in limited supply.
Lastly, local brewer Doc’s Draft Hard Cider in New York State is bringing their pumpkin cider, which is apple-based but fermented with local New York State pumpkins and ginger. I have’t had a pumpkin cider yet so I’m curious to taste the different between that and a pumpkin beer.
What can you offer serious beer snobs who think they have already tasted everything?
We are super excited to be featuring Brooklyn Brewery’s special brew THE DEFENDER, which they created just for New York Comic Con. This is a limited-edition-only IPA and they are going to be sharing it with all our Brooklyn Pour guests.
Sounds like we’re gonna need some food to soak all that up. Watcha got?
Lucky 777 Chili is bringing their famous chili dogs. Stable House will be serving a variety of tacos–including lobster and vegan ones. Chez Lola is bringing their salmon sliders and some crepes. Der Schwarze Kolner, a Ft. Greene local, will serve their trademark pretzels and sausage.
Likely you’re headed out on some kind of adventure tonight or tomorrow, whether it’s the kind that involves glitter, greasepaint and candy corn-flavored shots, or the type that starts with a Seamless order and ends three horror movies, a pizza and a bowl of popcorn later. Polish your party conversation game with this handful of […]
For over 10 years now, Australian singer-songwriter Greta Gertler has been a regular staple of the New York City downtown music scene–she has played pretty much every local venues past and present, from Manhattan’s Fez Under Time Cafe to Brooklyn’s Union Hall. Whether as a solo artist, a member of the bands Peccadillo and the […]
We started Indie Media Camp last year as a way to bring independent media makers together to network with and learn from one another. It was such a hit that we’ve decided to make it an annual event, and IMC 2014 returns to Gowanus on Wednesday, Nov. 19 from 10am-6pm at 501 Union. Who is […]
We’re on the slow train to winter, with shorter, colder days ahead and a lot of pumpkin spice in your future. The bright side? The first annual New York Festival of Light is debuting in DUMBO next week, disrupting the darkness with three nights of light installations throughout the neighborhood. Before the big feast looming […]
