I spend a lot of time at Rattle n Hum (a lot of time). Often the home of my weekly @boozeytuesday outing, within a year they have quickly gained respect as one of the best craft beer bars in New York City and – yeah, I’ll say it – the best beer bar in midtown Manhattan. As the year wraps up, 2010 is looking like a big year for the crew over on 33rd Stree. Here’s an abridged update to their update. Look for lots of these events on our NYC beer events calendar soon and check their blog for more details:
R’N'H Beer Clubs
Simply drink through 40 different types of beer in a month to get into Rattle n Hum’s new Mug Club. You’ll get a mug with your name engraved on it, $1 off beers for the rest of the year, and access to special brews throughout the year. My mug club adventure is set to start January 5th. If anyone wants to get down with a group Mug Club adventure then let me know.
Beer Miles Program Update
New Beer Miles cards are in (hopefully including mine) and these work just like frequent flyers. Get 50 miles for each beer you drink and then redeem them for free stuff throughout the year. Sign up with a waitress or bartender and get something back for growing that winter beer belly.
New Food Menu
The mythical new food menu will be up in a week or two. Hopefully those battered shrimp will finally make an appearance I can finally get chili and cheese on my fries!
