Announcing: The Complete Beer Course Release Party

ReleaseParty_CBC_web
On September 10 at 7:30 p.m., come join drinkers and thinkers at the Brooklyn Brewery as we proudly host the release party for The Complete Beer Course, Brooklyn author Joshua M. Bernstein’s comprehensive guide to enjoying and understanding mankind’s greatest beverage—in our humble opinion, at least.

To celebrate, Brooklyn Brewery will be opening up 10 draft lines and popping bottles of its award-winning Belgian-style beers. Snacks will be served to keep hunger at bay. Josh will be on hand to sign books and drink his body weight in beer.

Tickets will be available in two tiers:

* If you’re just down to drink, the $15 ticket will get you unlimited Brooklyn Brewery beer.

* The $30 ticket will get you unlimited Brooklyn Brewery beer and a copy of The Complete Beer Course (a $25 value).

To purchase tickets, please visit Brown Paper Tickets. Unfortunately, we are sold out.

For the summer issue of Draft magazine, I was able to tackle a subject very close to my heart: Brooklyn’s beer scene. Used to be, the beer scene in my home borough was a bit of a joke, a wan copy of brewing culture in Portland, Denver or San Francisco. Over the last few years, though, I’ve watched as King County’s beer culture has blossomed, with wildly ambitious bottle shops and bars such as Williamsburg’s Beer Street and Greenpoint’s Tørst capturing the interest of drinkers from both near and far. And with Brooklyn’s first brewpub, Dirk the Norseman, on deck along with a raft of new breweries such as EST and the Kings County Brewers Collective, it’s a great time to drink beer in New York. Check out my full story over at Draft‘s website or in print.
