Aaaaaand we’re back! The Beer Friends NYC Beer Events calendar updates took a bit of hiatus recently if you hadn’t noticed. I’d apologize, but it was for a good reason. A Colorado Brewery Tour is a good reason right? I think so. You’ll be hearing all about the Colorado trip and the 15 breweries we visited while there all in good time. For now let’s talk about what’s happening with craft beer this week in this little town.
Wednesday, August 25 – Sierra Nevada Extravaganza, Blind Tiger Ale House, Manhattan: It’s that time of year again! Sierra Nevada will be taking over the taps at the Blind Tiger Ale House for their yearly extravaganza. Last years event was phenomenal with all of Sierra Nevada’s fantastic regulars and more than a handful of rarely released and specialty brews. This is a brewery event you won’t want to miss at a beer bar that always puts on a great time.
Wednesday, August 25 – Blue Point Night, Standings, Manhattan: East Village Craft Brew hotspot Standings will be featuring four lines of Long Island’s favorite brewery: Blue Point Brewing Co., out of Patchogue, New York. They haven’t released the names of the brews that will be pouring but we imagine it’ll be somewhere along the lines of the Toasted Lager, Blueberry, Hoptical and maybe something mysterious. Or the Summer Ale.
Thursday, August 26 – Allagash Night, Barcade, Brooklyn: It has been faaar too long since the Beer Friends have made it out to this Brooklyn brewhouse/arcade. It has been one of our favorite bars for beer events and Pac-man and an Allagash event seems like a perfect reason to head back. So come on out to Barcade in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and join us in sharing some of Allagash’s traditional and experimental Belgian-Style Brews. I’m looking forward to grabbing an Allagash Black and maybe a Curieux.
