NYC Beer Events Calendar: April 11 – 17

Posted by: on Apr 11, 2011 | No Comments

A few amazing brewers are in town this week including Dan Paquette from Pretty Things and Brian Strumke from Stillwater Ales. Find them and seek out their beer knowledge. If you’d simply prefer a pint, there is an amazing Dogfish Head list in Brooklyn as well as some rare Elysian beers. Plus great homebrew events (including a tour of my homebrew rig) and the release of Captain Lawrence’s coveted Rosso e Marrone. Yup, just another week of beer in NYC.

Sunday, April 17th
Brooklyn Homebrew Tour – Brooklyn, NY
Journalist Josh Bernstein takes you on a tour of of the homes and brewing rigs of some of Brooklyn’s premier homebrewers. Despite their tiny apartments, these amateurs are producing beers on par with and, in some cases, beyond many commercial brews. This Brooklyn-edition of the tour swings by my apartment to check in on my tiny, tiny homebrew kitchen. I’m not sure what the other folks will be pouring but I’ll have at least five beers to try. If you are on the tour, make sure you say hi.

My Taplist for the tour:
Falconer’s Flight IPA – Citra, Amarillo and Sorachi Ace hopped IPA
Apple Brown Betty White – Imperial Brown Ale brewed with Ceylon cinnamon, Madagascar vanilla beans and cider molasses
XSmoke #1 – Experimental Porter brewed with beechwood smoked malt and rye
XSmoke #2 – Experimental Brown ale brewed with Alderwood and Cherrywood smoked malts
St. Therese Belgian Ale – Golden Strong Ale brewed with Hibiscus (my Brooklyn Wort Beer)
My Old Lady Old Ale – Wild ale brewed with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis
