10 Years Later…Reviving The Good Beer Seal!

The Good Beer Seal was founded in 2009 by Jimmy Carbone and several other NYC beer bar owners. Ten years later, Jimmy is reviving this important insignia! During the last decade, New York has been witness to an explosion in the craft beer industry. As providers rush to meet the demand, The Good Beer Seal endeavors to separate the wheat from the chaff by identifying bars that serve quality craft beer and demonstrate a commitment to the community in which they do business.

Here are a few of the 2019 Good Beer Seal Bar owners at managers at NYC Brewer’s Choice!

How does one earn a Good Beer Seal?

A Good Beer Seal Bar is independently owned and operated , and has a unique sense of place; making it more than just another watering hole. A Good Beer Seal Bar is destination-worthy. In addition to offering at least 80% craft domestic/ special imported beers, a Good Beer Seal Bar engages its staff and guests in educational offerings regarding the history and originality of the beers it serves. A bar that earns a Good Beer Seal will be active in its local and global community through responsible stewardship and charitable actions. If The Good Beer Seal is on the door, good business practices, good atmosphere, and good beer is inside.

These days, you can get a growler of great local beer at Duane Reade. That evolution is great, and it speaks to the growing demand for craft beer in the city. But it also means there’s a real need to keep raising the bar and to have an industry standard that sets the right tone. It’s not enough to have 20 taps if you’re not standing behind what you pour in a real way—through out the past 11 years, the  committee of the “good beer seal” was really looking for places that demonstrate individuality and passion, and that foster a sense of community through events that drive a dialogue about craft beer.

Congratulations to the New Good Beer Seal Bars of 2019!
