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.
As New Yorkers we pay dearly for limited space, and this can lead to a bad Ikea habit–when close to half your income goes toward rent each month it can be hard to justify investing even more in your apartment. We’re here to tell you though, creating a beautiful and comfortable oasis in the middle […]
There are a few things to know before heading to Ozone Park to eat at Don Peppe, one of New York’s classic red sauce Italian restaurants. They don’t take reservations. Cash only. Everything is served family style, so it’s best experienced in a group (but the maximum party size is 12). There are two kinds […]
Picture this: It’s a rainy day, and you’re in an eerily quiet room with 25 kindergartners. All of a sudden you notice that they are all holding metal hammers and buckets of nails! You try to run, but you can’t leave because you realize…one of them is your son! [Insert evil laugh here.] This actually […]
Everyone loves autumn in New York City, but it’s also a fantastic time to ditch the asphalt and head upstate for relaxing weekend of brilliant fall leafscapes and star-splattered night skies. About five years ago, a super-organized friend of mine rented a 10-person VRBO house outside of Woodstock one October weekend and started an annual […]
If you haven’t been watching The Knick, it’s well worth cozying up to someone with Cinemax (yes, they’ve got more than soft-core porn). As the initiated know, it’s an unsparingly gruesome portrait of Gilded Age New York, told through the framework of The Knickerbocker, a Victorian hulk of a hospital, which is struggling to modernize as […]
