New York City Craft Beer Events for the week of 11/14 - 11/21


Hey there all you New York City Beer Friends!  We have an exciting week of craft beer events coming our way this week!  Let's check em' out... Tuesday, November 16 - Tuesday Night Tastings with Smuttynose @ Bierkraft: A little taste of New Hampshire is coming Brooklyn's way tomorrow night.  Smuttynose will be hosting a tasting night at Bierkraft in Brooklyn.  Bierkraft is one of the best places to grab a growler in the entire city, not just in Brooklyn.  The prices are right and the beer is good.  Grab some Smutty Big A IPA and have a chat with Pat Fondiller, Smutty's NYC regional sales rep, about the inner-workings of the genius flowing from Smutty's taps.

Bierkraft is located at 191 5th Ave between Union and Sackett.

Tuesday, November 16 - $10 Dollar Tuesday's - Fancy Dutch Beer @ Jimmy's No. 43, Manhattan: The next installment of $10 Dollar Tuesday's at Jimmy's No. 43 will feature the Roll's Royce's of Craft Beer.  The Dutch have been brewing for longer than anyone can remember and have developed a penchant for brewing some very high class beers.  If you're not familiar with Dutch fancy brew then this is a perfect place to start getting familiar.

Jimmy's No. 43 is located downstairs at 43 E 7th St. between 2nd and 3rd Aves.

Tuesday, November 16 - Sixpoint Night @ The Pony Bar, Manhattan:  Sixpoint is back at the Pony Bar for their 2nd Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Blowout.  This event is special for the Beer Friends as it is legend that the idea behind our existence stems from a previous Sixpoint Night at the Pony Bar.  Come on over and get some liquid inspiration from Sixpoint as they take over the Pony taps with the finest they have to offer - Bengali, Otis and the now-in-season Gorilla Warfare Coffee Stout.  We will see you there!

The Pony Bar is located on the Northwest corner of 45th St and 10th Avenue.

Wednesday, November 17 - Peak Organic Camping Party @ The Stag's Head, Manhattan: The Beer Friends have had some excellent brewery tours over the past two years and in-between the brewery trips we spent a good deal of time camping.  Nothing feels better than sitting around the campfire, eating some hot dogs and having a good craft beer.  Peak Organic and the Stag's Head have realized this and are throwing their own camping party.  Come by to get some s'mores, baked beans and toast and some delicious Peak Organic.  Featuring Maple Oat and Espresso Amber that will warm you up like a campfire.

Stag's Head is located at 252 East 51st st. at 2nd Avenue.

Thursday, November 18 - Bear Republic Draft Takeover @ Bierkraft, Brooklyn: Bierkraft has got a busy week set up for themselves.  Enjoy delicious Smuttynose brews at the tasting on Tuesday then head back on Thursday for a complete draft takeover by Bear Republic.  We're talking Green House Lager, Stickball Alt and a NYC first-timer, the Cher Ami, a Belgian Singel.  There will probably be some Racer #5 and maybe even a Crazy Ivan too.  It's times like this that I wouldn't mind living in Brooklyn.  Next door to Bierkraft.

Bierkraft is located at 191 5th Ave between Union and Sackett.

Friday, November 19 - North Coast Tasting Event @ GRAB Specialty Foods, Brooklyn: The newest installment of GRAB Specialty Foods tasting series brings North Coast Brewery straight from Mendocino, California.  Sample some Pranqster, Old Rasputin, Red Seal and Brother Thelonius.  The proceeds from Brother Thelonius will support the Brother Thelonius Jazz Institute.  You can drink delicious beer and feel like your doing a good deed at the same time!

GRAB Specialy Foods is located at 438 7th Ave between 14th and 15th streets, Brooklyn.
