Hey all you Beer Friends out there! Let’s see what’s happening beer wise in this great metropolis of ours throughout this upcoming week.
Monday, October 11 – Troeg’s Tasting Event @ Amity Hall, Manhattan: Amity Hall is the place you go to when your nosing around Washington Square Park with your friends that are visiting the city and wanted to see Washington Square Park and then want beer. You know it’s there, you might not head to an NYU neighborhood regularly, but today you know that you will not take your friends to a light beer bar on Bleecker, but you will take them to a good craft beer bar on West 3rd. If all this happens to be happening tonight, Monday, October 11, then you will be in for a treat: Troeg’s Tasting Event. Troeg’s is a fantastic brewery from outside of Philadelphia. So after your friends have taken their respective pictures in front of the newly aligned fountain in Washington Square, bring them to Amity Hall, head upstairs and drink Troeg’s. They’ll thank you for saving them from tourist dogma.
Tuesday, October 12 – I Love NY Beer Week: Captain Lawrence Night @ The Spring Lounge, Manhattan: The Spring Lounge is a great beer bar that borders the entrance to Little Italy, a.k.a. many New Yorkers Tourist Nightmare (seems to be a theme today actually). However, you are not in Little Italy, nobody is throwing pasta at you and I promise you only have to choose 3 different flavors of gelato if you want to. The Spring Lounge is spending the week appreciating New York Breweries, from all over the state, starting with Captain Lawrence out of Kingston, NY. Come on by and grab some Westchester Pale Ale, Brown Bird Brown and Liquid Gold. And if you want, you can head over to Little Italy and get some gelato on your way out. You can even choose 3 flavors for the same price. If you want to.
