A Three-Event Series Celebrating Beer and Local Artisan Brewers
Wednesdays, July 13, 20, and 27 at 7:00PM
(New York, NY – June 27, 2016) – The Greene Space’s popular Craft Beer Jam is back for a sixth year celebrating great beer and innovative local brewers as part of Good Beer Month in New York City!
The series will be presented over three exciting evenings in July:
· Wednesday, July 13 – “New York vs. New Jersey Brew Battle”:
The series kicks things off with a city-suburb smackdown that will include blind tastings of craft beers from brewers on both sides of the Hudson River and a vote on who makes the best brew. Featuring beers by Departed Soles Brewing Company (Jersey City, NJ), Flounder Brewing Company (Hillsborough, NJ), Angry Erik Brewing (Lafayette, NJ), Lineup Brewing Company (Brooklyn, NY), Threes Brewing (Brooklyn, NY), and more.
· Wednesday, July 20 – “Brewing Like It’s 1776”:
For the second installment, raise a glass to the past at this tasting of beers from local breweries looking to the 18th century for inspiration. Sample authentic early American brews created by Bridge and Tunnel Brewery (Ridgewood, NJ), Gun Hill Brewing (Bronx, NY), and Harlem Brewing (New York, NY), and even learn a colonial drinking song (or two).
· Wednesday, July 27 – “The ‘New Primitives’ of the Hudson Valley”:
The third and final installment will focus on the magic of farm-to-tap brews from the Hudson Valley, where a new generation of flavor makers has set up shop to create ales with a local-only ethos. From the honey and fruit to the yeast to the heirloom grains and barley, these young, forward-thinking brewers are reversing years of advancement in brewing technology to make primitive, highly visceral beer. Featuring unique brews created by The Ground Brewery (Red Hook, NY) and others.
The series is hosted by Jimmy Carbone, owner of the bar Jimmy’s No. 43 in the East Village, co-founder of The Good Beer Seal, and host of the internet radio show "Beer Sessions Radio."
