New York City Craft Beer Events for the Week of August 5, 2012

Graham

Tuesday, August 7 - Founders Brewery Night @ Rattle n' Hum, Manhattan: Last year Founders took the city by storm, this year they are an established leader in the craft beer world.  Just cause they're easier to find these days doesn't mean that we don't still seek them out in all corners of the world and  Rattle n' Hum is making it easy as pie to find them tonight.  Stop in for a Founders extravaganza.  Here's the list:

Founders Cenntenial Founders Porter Founders 111pa Founders CBS Founders KBS Founders Breakfast Stout Founders Cerise

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

Wednesday, August 8 - Allagash Brewing Night @ The Stag's Head, Manhattan:

If you could mix Belgian beer and the good ol' American state of Maine you would inevitably get Allagash.  Brewing some of the best Belgian inspired beer this side of the pond, Allagash is a treat for both Belgian lovers and those of us that still find the style mysterious and elusive.  Get on over to Stag's Head on Wednesday to enjoy several pours from Allagash, snacks and rep Susan Greene as she talks up all things Allagash.  Check out the list:

Bourbon Barrel Aged Black Blonde Interlude HLT Saison Mihm

The Stag's Head is located at 252 East 51st Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in the Midtown East neighborhood of Manhattan.

Wednesday, August 8 - Green Flash Tap Takeover @ Bierkraft, Brooklyn:

If West Coast brewing is known for one thing it's their creative and generous use of hops in everything they do.  Green Flash embodies this tradition perfectly.  One of the best breweries in San Diego, the state of California and the nation as a whole they have continued to surprise and impress with their interpretations of various beer styles.  Bierkraft will be handing over the reigns to them on Wednesday and we couldn't be more excited and intrigued.

Bierkraft is located at 191 5th Avenue between Union and Berkeley Streets in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Thursday, August 9 - Green Flash! @ The Gate, Brooklyn:

Yes.  You did read that correctly.  There are two Green Flash events happening this week.  If you missed it (or didn't get your fill) of Green Flash at Bierkraft on Wednesday then head right down the street to the Gate on Thursday.  I don't want to say one event is better than another, but the Gate is boasting a very impressive selection, including some "can't get in NYC" and a firkin.  A firkin.

I think that's a Gold Medal in the Green Flash event.

The Gate is located at 321 5th Avenue on the southeast corner of 3rd Street in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Thursday, August 9 - Greenport Harbor Brewery Evening @ Standings, Manhattan:

I know what you've been thinking recently:  I love watching the Olympics but something's missing.  Well, we've found the solution.  Head to Standings, possibly NYC's finest, dive, sports centered, craft beer bar for some Olympic action, free pizza and taking the gold: Greenport Harbor brews.  They'll be pouring four from this fantastic Long Island brewery.  All of this will be starting as soon as you can get there.

Anniversary Ale Triton Hoppy Stout Summer Ale

Standings is located at Upstairs 43 East 7th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan.
