New York City Craft Beer Events for the Week of December 18, 2011


Tuesday, December 20 - Tuesday Night Tasting with Oskar Blues @ Bierkraft, Brooklyn: Colorado and Brooklyn were meant to be together.  Great beer in a borough that loves great beer.  Perfect equation.  Bierkraft is hosting Oskar Blues and all their beer glory this Tuesday.  Yvon Pasquarello will be bringing an array of canned brew, drafts and a special kegs of HGH - a strong ale brewed with homegrown hops from the Hops and Heifers farm owned by Oskar Blues.  Arrive at Bierkraft early to make sure you get a seat at this awesome beer event.

Bierkraft is located at 191 5th Avenue between Berkeley and Union Streets, Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Tuesday, December 20 - Christmas Festival 2011 @ The Burp Castle, Manhattan:

The Burp Castle is a rarity on the NYC Craft Beer event scene.  However, a bar that usually stays quiet (in more ways than one) is throwing a special event for the holiday season this year: Christmas Fest 2011.  They'll be pouring three hard to find and extra delicious winter brews:

Ridgeway Bad Elf Nogne-O Peculiar Yuletide Ridgeway Reindeer Droppings

As if that didn't adequately celebrate the holiday season - they'll be serving up free Belgian fries from Pommes Frites - home to NYC's best Beglian fries.

Burp Castle is located at 41 East 7th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue, East Village, Manhattan.

Thursday, December 22 - Green Flash Night @ The Pony Bar, Manhattan:

The craft brew bar masters over at the Pony are hosting one of SoCal's finest and hoppiest craft breweries - Green Flash (a stop on the Beer Friends SoCal Brewery Tour of 2011!).  They'll be taking over as many taps as they can with several of their award winning beers that brewmaster Chuck Silva is more than happy to show off.  Pony up to some West Coast hops and malts!

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

Thursday, December 22 - Left Hand Night @ Bierkraft, Brooklyn:

Bierkraft must have Colorado on the mind this week instead of Christmas.  Or maybe, when they think of happy holiday cheer, Left Hand just comes to mind.  Either way, we're pretty pumped for another one of Colorado's oldest and most famous breweries to bring their craft to NYC's biggest borough.  Left Hand is pouring a lineup that will knock you straight into the holiday season:

Good Juju Ginger Polestar Pils Sawtooth (CO2, not Nitro. Very rare) 400 lb. Monkey Stranger Heaven Hill Barrel Aged Wake Up Dead Fade to Black vol. 3 Pepper Porter Fade to Black vol 2 Smoked Baltic Porter Black Jack Porter

Bierkraft is located at 191 5th Avenue between Berkeley and Union Streets, Park Slope, Brooklyn.
