New York City breweries make some of the Northeast's best IPAs. Cracking into an aluminum-clad double IPA, however, often requires traveling directly to every brewery and waiting in line.
Today you don't need to wait.
To celebrate my latest book, Complete IPA, we've corralled fresh canned IPAs from 11 of the area's best IPA breweries, counting Other Half, Grimm, Finback, KCBC, Interboro, and more. Cans will be sold in the backyard, where I'll sign copies of my book and gawk in terror and wonder at the beer-bong competition.
I repeat, we will have a beer bong.
The event is free to attend. Cans are only available for on-site consumption, though we will have a limited number of book-and-beer gift packs available to go.
