NY Craft Beer Week Exclusive Press Preview

Beer enthusiasts and foodies alike are united in the 3rd Annual NY Craft Beer Week, September 24 to October 3. The kickoff event was sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery and provided a sneak peek at some of the beers being offered this year. The citywide event covers all five boroughs and offers the opportunity to enjoy over 100 craft beers as well as Zagat’s “Beer Pairing Menus.” I can tell you, from first hand experience, that these craft beers are truly unique and leave you wanting more! Just purchase your NYC Beer Passport 2010 for $10 for a full list of participating bars and restaurants. The passport allows you to sample craft beers for $3 at participating merchants. That’s right, $3!  Quite a beer deal for the big city!  

Among my favorites sampled were Brooklyn Brewery’s Cookie Jar Porter, a delicious blend of Oatmeal Cookies and dark malty liquid gold. Not too sweet but just enough flavor to get my attention. Victory Brewing Company offers a wide range of Belgian and German style beers including Saison du BUFF, a blend of rosemary, sage and thyme. It was like drinking Thanksgiving in a glass. Ommegang Brewery form Cooperstown, NY offers one of the smoothest Pale Ales I’ve tasted and Goose Island Brewery makes 50 craft beers including Madame Rose that ages in wine barrels with whole cherries. I sampled Sofie, a dry sparkling ale with a hint of orange peel and vanilla. All of these beers were fantastic!  Craft beers are here to stay!

I know some of you are purists and just want to drink a Bud and be happy, but for a $10 passport you might just discover a world of enjoyment you never knew existed. Trust me, it’s worth it!

To purchase your Beer Passport and get more information go to www.nycbeerweek.com.  CHEERS!!!
