New Yorkers like to be first. The first to eat at a restaurant. The first to see a band. The first to drink a beer. Tonight, at an old warehouse in seafaring Red Hook, not too terribly far from the water, youll get a chance to try beer from some of the latest and soon to be greatest breweries to enter the local market.
To start, Brooklyn's Folksbier and Threes will be on hand, as well as Suarez Family Brewery, to roll out the welcome mat with their pinpoint lagers and IPAs. Then, you'll be treated to some of the city's first tastes from a trio of breweries.
We'll meet the fine folks of Fair State, Minneapolis finest purveyor of pale ales, pilsners and more. Then, you'll drink the top beers from Fox Farm, a Connecticut brewery making waves for their unfiltered pilsner, robust porter and flavor-charged hazy IPAs. Lastly, well toast to Torch & Crown, a new entrant to New York City's beer scene helmed by a veteran from New Jersey's cultish Kane.
Additionally, Folksbier will sling their killer tacos (for carnivores and vegetarians alike) served on Tortilleria Nixtamal's top-notch corn tortillas. (Food purchases will be additional.)
The price? A pittance to cover the cost of the kegs and ice. The point is to make new beer friends, the kind that will be steady drinking companions in New York City tonight and for all future nights to come.
