Thursday, August 8 is a great night to be a beer lover in Brooklyn. Hop Culture Magazine is hosting two events at a pair of borough favorites as part of Beers With(out) Beards, a five-day celebration of women in craft beer.
In Boerum Hill, the excellent St. Gambrinus Beer Shoppe is hosting a lesson that will make beer and cheese pairing brie-zy. A $30 ticket scores you five Tröegs brews and their perfect cheesy counterpart at one of two sessions: 5pm or 7pm. Greenpoint is also getting in on the action with a women’s networking event at Threes Franklin + Kent from 8 to 10pm. Come armed with a favorite bottle or two to share, and get ready to swap beers, stories and tips with fellow brew-loving ladies. Your $15 ticket includes a Hop Culture glass to take home.
But don’t fret if you’re not free on Thursday. The festival runs from Wednesday to Sunday, with lots of events to choose from and plenty of beer to go around. Cheers!
