It is sad, but it is true….this is the last week of New York City Good Beer Month. We at the Beer Friends would like to give a huge thanks to the guys over at the Good Beer Seal for coming up with the NYC Good Beer Month idea, getting the mayor to proclaim it to be true and then organizing a multitude of good events with local bars, breweries and organizations to highlight how much this city loves its craft beer. If this isn’t a sign that the Craft Beer Revolution is in full force, then I don’t know what is.
Your last week of NYC Good Beer Month is filled with some exciting culminating events. Check em’ out below…we’ll see you there!
Tuesday, July 27 – Sixpoint @ Rattle N’ Hum, Manhattan: On Tuesday we will all be very lucky people. The city’s youngest brewery and one of the brightest on the scene will be showcasing their best pours (which is all of them) at Rattle n’ Hum (33rd just East of 5th). Come catch all of Sixpoint’s best beers with the Beer Friends. We will definitely be in attendance searching for some Bengali Tiger, Sweet Action, Righteous Rye, Brownstone, Otis and some of the new Signal IPA. Nothing like Sixpoint to bring NYC Good Beer Month back home. Plan to check back here tomorrow for the recap...I wouldn't miss this for anything.

Wednesday, July 28 – Good Beer At Bam, Manhattan: This event is the signature farewell to NYC Good Beer Month. The guys at Good Beer Seal got some of the best regional brewers to provide their beer as inspiration for some of the best regional chefs in an event that is all-encompassingly mouth watering. Using the beer to fuel their fires, the best NYC and surrounding area chefs will be cooking up succulent food pairings. The event is only for ticketed guests so make sure you go purchase yours today. I’m sure they are going fast. Buy your tickets here!
Wednesday, July 28 – Two Brothers Night @ Blind Tiger, Manhattan: Two Brothers Brewery will be making a rare trip to NYC to provide us with 15+ taps of their delicious craft creations. Make your way down to the village for some delicious craft beer. The Beer Friends will be in attendance.
Thursday, July 29 - Christmas in July @ Burp Castle, Manhattan: Keeping with the Christmas in July theme, Burp Castle is throwing their own celebration. Featuring Troeg's Mad Elf and Jenlain Noel on tap along with free Belgian fries at the bar. After all, what is Christmas without Belgian fries?
Saturday, July 31 - The Great Hot Dog Cookoff @ Kelso Brewery, Brooklyn: Good beer leads to good things. Kelso Brewery takes that to the next level by closing down their block in Brooklyn and hosting a huge craft brew fueled hotdog cookoff to benefit City Harvest, a New York food bank charity. They bring in a bunch of culinary experts to compete for your attention for their hotdogs in order to find out who cooks up the best weiner. There will also be plenty of craft beer available. I've heard they got a pretty rockin' set of bands playing too. Charity never tasted so good.
The Beer Friends would like to thank you for hanging out with us during this wonderful craft beer month. Hopefully we'll get to see familiar faces at all the events this week. We'll be the ones walking around with the petition to extend NYC Good Beer Month to August. And September, and October and...
