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.
Let’s take a moment to take stock of just how much time we’ve all spent taking Buzzfeed quizzes this winter. Yikes. Now that we all know which NYC neighborhood we’re supposed to live in and what kind of dog we should own, how about we slow it down a bit? It’s time for our monthly […]
One of the widely known secrets in New York City is the free admission days to its top museums, when lines of people wrap around a block (for hours and in all weather) for entrée. With admission running up to $25, it definitely can be worth the wait. But, if you have children, there is […]
Pee Wee Herman’s bike, the one that sparked a cross-country quest in the 1985 classic, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure is up for sale on eBay right now. It’s at just over $25,000 with a little more than eight hours left to go on the bidding. Comes with an autographed photo of Paul Reubens and documentation that […]
There are 25,000 objects in the Brooklyn Museum decorative arts collection, and each one has a story. We’ll highlight one particularly interesting piece each month, starting with one of the the collection’s most controversial acquisitions. By design, decorative art objects are intended to be one of two things: pretty or purposeful. “It’s unusual that they have […]
The Runaways didn’t have of a long career, but they were certainly ahead of their time. An explosive outfit both on and offstage, they were one of the first all-female hard rock bands to clear a path for future women rockstars. Though the Runaways had broken up by the early ’80s, former members like Joan […]
