This year the Brooklyn Pour will be on Saturday, October 12th and back at the Skylight One Hanson. If last year's success of the Pour is any indication for this year we are all in for a huge treat!
Okay, now you know the Brooklyn Pour is coming but I can't believe I actually have to tell you why you should go. Well, how does 100+ craft beers grab you? Ah, I thought so! I can already see you and 1,000 of your fellow beer geeks chomping at the bit to storm the Skylight. Of course the beer is the main focus of this tasting, but not the only reason to go.
Here's exactly why you need to attend this event:
1. Yes, the Beer!
But not just because it's beer, but because it's mostly local Craft Beer. Breweries from all over New York, and a few from beyond, will be represented sharing the fruits of their labor. Many rare, new & exotic beers will be poured here that you can't normally find on the shelves of your local liquor store.
2. 3 hours of Heaven.
There are two separate 3 hour sessions where you, armed with your trusty sample glass, can drink as much and as many different beers as you please! Plus with the event now being split up into different sessions it means you will spend less time waiting in line or fighting a crowd and more time delighting your taste buds. Also if 3 hours is just not enough for you, then go buy a VIP ticket and get in an hour early!
Not only will you learn about beers by simply trying new ones, but a lot of the Brewers will offer demonstrations, beer talks, and even meet & greets or check out one of the many virtual photo booth placements and take memorable pics for the years to come. If you find yourself needing to take a breather from the constant drinking, then check out one of these offerings to feed your mind as well as your belly. Try to hit up a meet & greet too. Just think, you could be drinking a beer while chatting with the guy responsible for brewing it!
If you need something to soak up the suds, there will be a food court for the event with many tasty treats to be found. All of that drinking can really work up an appetite!
So do yourself a favor and grab a ticket today!
