In the craft beer world movement to get local, we find Rockaway Brewing Company , a company so local they deliver their kegs via bicycle! This brewery pairs up with Jimmy's No. 43 and Queens County Farm Museum to provide a small tasting where you can try this 2 barrel microbrewery and find out a little more about the Queens County Farm Museum in a fun filled evening of food pairing and local drinking.
Jimmy's No. 43 is located at 43 E 7th St., New York, NY

While Idle Hands Bar is doing its wonderful $10 Tastings with Harpoon Brewery (including a full pour of UFO Pumpkin), across the island of Manhattan The Blind Tiger is hosting Great Divide Brewing Company with delicious pours including: a few Yeti's (Chocolate Oak-Aged, 2011 Belgian, and Cask Oak-Aged) and a personal favorite - Smoked Baltic Porter.

The Growler Station jumped on the Beer Friends radar in a big way. Excellent pours, great bottle section and a very knowledgable staff (they even have a cool website!) all makes for a great beer hangout. On Thursday they prove their awesome-ness by hosting Kelso with special pours of Kellerfest and Imperial Pumpkin (tis the season).
The Growler Station is located at 26 W 8th St.
