New York City Craft Beer Events for the Week of January 27, 2012


Tuesday, January 29 - You've Got A Friend In Pennsylvania @ The Pony Bar HK, Manhattan: The great state of Pennsylvania will be attempting to reignite your friendship tonight at the Pony Bar in Hell's Kitchen.  How you ask? By serving you up some of the best brews created by some of their finest breweries.  Stoudt's, Victory, Troegs and Weyerbacher will be on hand and you'll be enjoying the fruits of their creations.

And who are we kidding, you're friendship never un-ignited.

The Pony Bar HK is located at 637 10th Avenue on the northwest corner of 45th Street in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan.

Tuesday, January 29 - Barrier Brewing Night @ The Mission Dolores, Brooklyn:

It looked bleak: Hurricane Sandy hit and put all of Barrier's brewing operations out of commission and we were without any Barrier brew for quite some time.  Well, the sun has risen again and Barrier is back in action with 6 new beers currently in their tanks ready to go.  They'll be pouring them at Mission Dolores tonight.  So get on over there and support one of New York's finest breweries.

Mission Dolores is located at 249 4th Avenue between Carroll and President Streets in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Wednesday, January 30 - Spanish Craft Beer @ Jimmy's No. 43, Manhattan:

Spain has been making quite the craft beer stir here in NYC recently.  It seems like every other craft beer bar is celebrating this relative newcomer to the scene and Jimmy's No. 43 isn't going to be left out.  They will actually be featuring a short term rotating installation of taps straight from the Iberian peninsula.  This week they'll be featuring:

-“Lug” Bitter/Pale Ale -1907 Pre-Prohibition Pale Ale - Juliette Extra Stout

All beers are imported by Iberian Beer United and all three breweries are from Barcelona (Grisberger, L'anjub and Sagra).

Jimmy's No. 43 is located at downstairs East 43rd Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

Wednesday, January 30 - Harpoon Brewery Tap Takeover @ Mudville 9, Manhattan:

Harpoon Brewery out of Boston has proven themselves to be quite the diverse brewery: everyday staples like UFO and the IPA, rare big beer series like 100 Barrel and Brewers Reserve and even one of the best craft ciders on the market.  Stop by Mudville 9 this Wednesday to experience the full range of their craft brew creativity as they take over all the taps.  All of them.

Mudville 9 is located at 126 Chambers Street between West Broadway and Church Street in the Financial District neighborhood of Manhattan.
