After hurricanes and presidential elections we are finally back here at the Beer Friends with some excellent celebratory/wound licking events for you. Wednesday, November 7 - Fullers Beer Night @ One Stop Beer Shop, Brooklyn:
Depending on your horse you're either loving America this morning or severely disappointed with it. OR you're just sick of the circus-like charade of it all. How about some of the best foreign new from the rest world to forget American politics for a minute? We think yes.
Fullers is renowned as one of the finest beer brewers in the world making everything from the darkest stouts to the hoppiest IPA's on to the most golden of ales. They'll be pouring a wide range of draughts and a strong selection of bottles over at One Stop Beer Shop tonight for you to enjoy.
So head on over to enjoy some nowhere-near-American-partisan brew and forget about attack ads, electoral colleges and primary colored states for a night.
The One Stop Beer Shop is located at 134 Kingsland Avenue between Beadle and Lombardy Streets in the East Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Wednesday, November 7 - Borubon Barrel Boner Night @ Double Windsor, Brooklyn:
American trivia question: What is our official national alcoholic beverage?
If you said beer, well, you're wrong. It's bourbon.
BUT WAIT! If we somehow combined the smokey, sweet and fiery taste of bourbon with beer then we might just create a super-American hybrid. If only we could figure that out...
Being served tomorrow night at the Double Windsor in Windsor Terrace:
Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout Goose Island Bourbon County Stout Allagash Bourbon Black
You're welcome America.
The Double Windsor is located at 210 Prospect Park West between 15th and 16th Streets in the Windsor Terrace neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Thursday, November 8 - Dogfish Head Novemberfest @ Standings, Manhattan:
Oh, so you never cared about American politics and just want to forget about them for a night? We got you.
The heavy hitters at Dogfish Head will be pouring some heavy hitters of their own at Standings this Thursday that will surely help you forget anything. Including whatever might of happened to you during hurricane sandy.
Here's the list:
Punkin Black and Blue Midas Touch Bitches Brew Saison du Buff
Did we mention that these are all on draught. We seriously didn't even know that was possible for some of them.
Standings is located at Upstairs 43 East 7th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan. Thursday, November 8 - Hurricane Sandy Relief with Ithaca Brewery @ George Keeley, Manhattan:
Alright, presidential elections blah blah blah, en vogue, blah blah - does anyone remember the hurricane?!?! That is still affecting thousands of people? Well, we in New York still do and so do the fine folks at George Keeley's.
They were originally supposed to host Ithaca and their Country Pumpkin ale. However, after the superstorm Keeley's decided to throw the party but donate 100% of all Country Pumpkin profits to the Mayor's Fund. On top of that there will be rare Ithaca bottle auctions and a raffle in which all proceeds will head to the same charity.
I can't think of anything more feel-good than good beer and charity for people who still really need it. Desperately in many cases. Hit this one up.
George Keeley is located at 485 Amsterdam Avenue between 83rd and 84th Streets in the Upper West Side neighborhood of Manhattan.
