Boy, it sure is hot outside. Which makes me want to drink beer. Lots and lots of beer. Thus, I've decided to run one more homebrew tour this summer. It will take place on Saturday, August 3, at 1 p.m. in Long Island City. The details:
We're going to start at the home of Mike Gilliard, who has outfitted his apartment with a half-barrel setup and keezer. He’ll likely be serving a lager, a sour and full-bodied ale. Next, we’re headed around the corner to meet Michael Cabrera, a veteran homebrewer who teaches classes in the neighborhood. He’ll be serving an American-style amber ale and an apricot ale—aces for summer.
Lastly, were going to stroll around the corner to meet the team from the Rockaway Brewing Company. You’ll meet the founders, hear how they went from homebrewers to brewers and, most importantly, get to sample their range of excellent beer, including the Rockaway ESB, Summer Ale, Old School IPA and perhaps a stout or a saison. Bring your growler for a discounted fill.
Tickets: $30 (includes all samples). Buy them here.
