New York City Craft Beer Events for the Week of April 22, 2012


Tuesday, April 24 - Allagash Tasting @ Rattle n' Hum, Manhattan: Allagash Brewery from Portland, Maine will be bringing their lineup of Belgian inspired brews to Rattle n' Hum tonight.  Expect some rare and awesome brews (our personal favorite is Allagash Black) as they'll be pouring from 15 taps.

Rattle n' Hum is located at 14 East 33rd Street between Madison and 5th Avenues, Midtown, Manhattan.

Tuesday, April 24 - Tuesday Night Tasting: Smoked Beers @ Bierkraft, Brooklyn:

We know what you were thinking when you woke up this morning:  I want to get more into smoked beers.  You can call us beer psychics.  You can also count on us to show you the way to your desires.  It just so happens that this week's Tuesday Night Tasting at Bierkraft is focusing on smoked beer.  Everything from traditional German Rauchbier to newer American smoked beers will be on hand and their cellar manager, Matt Barclay, will be walking you through the all the ins and outs.  Get ready for more smoke in your life.

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

Wednesday, April 25 - Beerituality Film Viewing @ Jimmy's No. 43, Manhattan:

Spirituality is declining world-wide.  How to save it?  Directly associate it with beer.  The beer guru's at Jimmy's No. 43 are hosting a viewing party for the film Beerituality on Wednesday and you should be there to check it out.  Think of it as going to church, but much more fun and with beer involved.

Jimmy's No. 43 is located at downstairs 43 East 7th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, East Village, Manhattan.

Thursday, April 26 - Dogfish Head Ultimate Smackdown @ David Copperfield's, Manhattan:

If you asked someone to associate the words "Ultimate Smackdown" with a brewery the first one to come to mind would most definitely be Dogfish Head.  Hence why the title is so appropriate.  The brewers of some of the worlds most ultimate-smackdowness brews will be bringing an impressive lineup to David Copperfield's this Thursday.  We'd encourage you to try them all but then you'd be ultimately smacked down, probably for good.  Like dead.
