The July Good Beer Month for 2012 will bring back many favorites along with several new Good Beer Seal events, including:
On Independence Day you can celebrate your local pride with some great New York State brews from Ithaca, Barrier, Blind Bat, Greenport Harbor, or Brooklyn Brewery, to name a few. It’s a great way to kick off July Good Beer Month, but it is ONLY THE BEGINNING!
Keep your calendar (and your bellies!) open for Cook Out NYC, (July 7-8) the ultimate cook out, country fair event on Governors Island featuring Sixpoint Craft Ales. Governors Island is NYC’s picturesque getaway island that is just minutes away from lower Manhattan by ferry, but miles away in your mind. You’ll enjoy beautiful views, car-free streets, live music, world class grilling and BBQ, cooking demonstrations and delicious craft beer during this annual event that will remind you what summer is all about!
On July 10, head over to Brooklyn Brewery for Kegs & Kluckers presented by NYC Homebrewer’s Guild and Just Food, bringing together home brewers and urban chicken keepers for this community building event to benefit Just Food.
Come back to Brooklyn Brewery on July 11 to join The Weekly Pint for Brooklyn Pig and Pickle, featuring great Brooklyn beers, pork and McClure’s pickles.
July 12, head over to WNYC’s Greene Space for Craft Beer Jam where Jimmy Carbone, host of the internet radio show “Beer Sessions Radio (TM)” and co-founder of The Good Beer Seal, considers the nuances of beer and food pairings, beer trends and traditions with guests Kelly Taylor (Kelso Beer Co.), Matt Bean (Men’s Health) and a panel of New York City’s most innovative beer/food personalities.
