More than one hundred different craft beers will be on display for the tasting on Saturday, September 26th at one of the season’s most diverse and exciting booze-fueled festivals. The Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint plays as the newest host to the Village Voice’s 5th Annual ‘Brooklyn Pour,’ a fall classic that combines suds, eats and festivities for three action packed hours. If you’ve never had the opportunity to experience any of the event’s previous happenings- well, you’ve still got time to pick up some general admission or VIP tickets to the smorgasbord for beer lovers.
A commemorative tasting glass gets you in on the action- where your outstretched arm will lead your journey through the jam packed festival. Whether you’re a more casual or expert beer drinker, a lover of microbrews or more traditional varieties, ‘Brooklyn Pour’s’ got a cavalcade of different options for any taste. Local breweries like Coney Island Brewing, Queens Brewery, Sixpoint Craft Ales, Alphabet City Brewing Company and Brooklyn Brewery join international beermakers Asahi, Krombacher and Weihenstephan just to name a few brands slated to be poured on site. And if you’re not typically a beer fan? No problem. ACE Premium Hard Ciders, Angry Orchard, Downeast Cider House and Rekorderlig Cider and Crabbie’s Ginger Beer are some delicious alternatives should more traditional beers not be your thang.
Aside from the sea of suds slated to fill the Expo Center, Q104.3 on air personality Jonathan Clarke will DJ and emcee the afternoon as games and photo booths are sure to fill the remaining open areas of the sizable venue. Tickets for the 5th Annual ‘Brooklyn Pour’ are available now. Don’t get shut out, because an event of this size and caliber goes down but once a year.
