New York City Craft Beer Events for the Week of December 4, 2011


Tuesday, December 6 - Lagunitas Night @ The Pony Bar, Manhattan: Petaluma, California must be a very happy town.  I have no clue what it looks like, or who lives there, but I know they must be happy. They have Lagunitas.  Tomorrow at the Pony Bar a little bit of Petaluma, California will be hitting New York.  Lagunitas, brewers of delicious regular brews and standout big beers and will be sure to take over as many taps as humanly possible at the Pony (around 20) with many of them being those 8 oz. big uns'.

There will also be several representatives from the brewery on hand. They will school you on everything Lagunitas, and will tell you about everything Petaluma, but still won't be that California beach blond you've been searching for.

The Pony Bar is located at 637 10th Avenue on the northwest corner of 45th Street, Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan.

Wednesday, December 7 - A Very Vinyl Christmas @ The Double Windsor, Brooklyn:

If you haven't noticed (honestly, we hadn't until recently), Wednesdays at the Double Windsor are always a beer party.    There's always a beer style, a related-to-the-theme-snack and a vinyl spinning DJ on had.  Pleasant Warning:  That DJ spins all night.  Along with the beer.  The snacks don't last forever, so you should get there early, but to get the full range of Christmas brew (and holiday interpreted tunes), you should also plan to stay up all night.

Thursday is the most attractive sick-day-day.

The Double Windsor is located at 210 Prospect Park West on the northwest corner of 16th Street, Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn.

Wednesday, December 7 - Wednesday Night Beer Club @ The Bronx Ale House, The Bronx:

You need to do more things in your life.  You know, become more active, meet new people and break out of that cold dark shell that you've created for yourself.  The Brox Ale House's Beer Club is just the remedy for your depressive situation.  Meeting every Wednesday night, being a Beer Club member has many benefits - t-shirts, personalized mugs, beer specials, special events, discounts on just about everything and a special night just to yourself and the other like minded club members.

You've been putting this off for too long.

The Bronx Ale House is located at 216 West 238th Street, Riverdale, The Bronx.
