Wednesday, January 16 - Pleasure Palace of Sour: A Festival of Wild Ales @ Bierkraft, Brooklyn:

Has craft beer become a bit boring?  Nah, it's still pretty damn great.  Still want to try something that'll blow you away.  Head over to Bierkraft tomorrow to try a plethora of sour brews: goses, Berliner-weisses, Flanders red, krieks and more.  Seven lines in all of only sour brews with plenty of kegs to back those 7 lines up.  They'll serve the sour brews until there's no more.

Pucker up and head on over.

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

Wednesday, January 16 - Cricket Hill Brewery Night @ The Stag's Head, Manhattan:

We are proud to call ourselves New Yorkers these days, what with all the brewing that's going on here these days.  However, we often overlook our little brother of a state: New Jersey.  Cricket Hill Brewery, in Fairfield, has been brewing up a storm recently.  They'll be bringing 11 draught lines to Stag's Head along with owner Rick Reid to answer all your beer questions.

On top of that you'll get some free snacks: mini polenta cakes with wild mushrooms.

Much better than bar peanuts.

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

Thursday, January 17 - Kelso Beer Tasting @ Malt and Mold, Manhattan:

Head on down to one of the cities newest craft beer spaces as they host one of Brooklyn's finest.  Kelso will be bringing four of their draughts to Malt and Mold on Thursday for your enjoyment.  Sample some Pilsner, Nut Brown Lager, Fuku and Industrial and then take a growler home of your favorite.  Maybe even two.

Malt and Mold is located at 221 East Broadway between Clinton and Pitt Streets in the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan.
