Its time to wash away those winter blues with pints of booze. And, lucky for us New Yorkers there’s a way to engage in hop-therapy no matter your budget. For those of us who are thin in the wallet, check out Brooklyn Wort, Brooklyn’s Homebrew competition where 30 different competitors will have their homestuff’s available for us to drink and judge (and I LOVE to judge) on February 26th. The 4:30 tasting is already sold out, so you best snap up tickets ($30 - that’s $1 a taste) to the 2:30 tasting if you’re interested.
There’s also a parallel event in Boston for our friends in the second-best-east-coast-city.
Those of you with a little more cash to burn might be interested in Get Real NY’s Craft Beer & Food Festival on March 19th - 20th. $65 will get you 3hrs of cask conditioned ales and corresponding food pairings, or for $80 you can chug-a-lug for a full 4 hrs.
