New York City Craft Beer Events for the Week of April 29, 2012


Tuesday, May 1 - Allagash Brewery Night @ Bar Great Harry, Brooklyn: Have you been looking for an excuse to go to Brooklyn?  Well you shouldn't have been, it's awesome and you should visit all the time.  But I suppose if you need special motivation then tonight's Allagash tap takeover at Bar Great Harry (that's BGH for you true fans) should be plenty.  They'll be serving up a draft list of impressive proportions that feature a wide range of Allagash brews - mostly Belgian influenced, but with true American heart.

Tuesday, May 1 - $10 Tuesday Tastings: Sours and Lambics @ Jimmy's No. 43, Manhattan:

Jimmy's is doing it again.  And by again, we really mean their consistent devotion towards educating the masses on the varied and delicious world of beer.  This week at their $10 Tuesday Tastings they'll be featuring Sours and Lambics.  What happens when you add strange and funky yeast and fruit to beer?  Well, come find out tonight and learn yourself something new about a style of brew you've probably haven't had much experience with.

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

Wednesday, May 2 - Sippin' on Saisons @ The Double Windsor, Brooklyn:

Spring is fast upon us and probably fast leaving us as well.  That means you only have a limited time to consume all the spring styled brews that are out there.  Saisons definitely lapse into summer as well, but we think it's pretty appropriate to start consuming them now.  The Double Windsor in Brooklyn wants to help you with this goal.  They'll be serving up six Saisons in order to quench your springtime, farmhand thirst.  Check it out:

Stillwater/Mikkeller Two Gypsies Our Side

Dupont Foret

Hopfenstark Station 7

Flying Dog In De Wildeman Farmhouse IPA

Moinette Blonde

Blaugies la Moneuse

The Double Windsor is located at 210 Prospect Park West on the northwest corner of Windsor Place, Brooklyn.

Thursday, May 3 - IPA NIGHT!!! @ Bierkraft, Brooklyn:

One of the best nights to head to a craft beer bar in all of NYC is back again for another month: IPA Night at Bierkraft!  What other bar in the city could pull such refreshing, innovative and delicious IPAs out of their cellars for the drinking masses?   Come imbibe your favorite hop-packed brews this Thursday with the fantastic staff at Bierkraft.  The list is tba (which means usually, "when you get there") but there is sure to be little disappointment with what they pull out.

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