The Village Voice Announces Second Annual Brooklyn Pour Craft Beer Tasting Event
Fri, 10 Aug 2012 10:25:48
Bottoms up, New Yorkers! More specifically, Brooklynites.
After a sold out event last year, The Village Voice announced that it will hold its second annual curated Brooklyn Pour craft beer tasting event on Saturday, Oct. 6 with tickets on sale Aug. 22. Featuring over 100+ craft brews from New York and beyond, the event will again take place in Fort Greene, Brooklyn at Skylight One Hanson (formerly the old Williamsburg Savings Bank.)
Pre-sale tickets will be available exclusively through Village Voice Daily Deal on Aug. 21 and will offer 50% off a limited number of VIP and General Admission tickets.
Over 3,000 craft beer aficionados will sample the best seasonal, micro and reserve brews from breweries located in the country with a pinpointed focus on the tri-state area. The best craft brews will be represented, along with demonstrations, meet & greets, beer talks, food court and more.
New to 2012, event directors have decided to split the event into two sessions - the first from 1-4PM and the second from 6pm-9pm. Both sessions will have GA and VIP tickets sold.
"We are thrilled to announce the return of Brooklyn Pour this year," said Village Voice Publisher Josh Fromson. "After an overwhelming response to the event last year and tickets being sold out in advance we decided to bring more beer to Brooklyn with the addition of two separate tasting sessions so all New York City beer enthusiasts can enjoy."
The Village Voice's Brooklyn Pour craft beer festival has kept in the true form as its sister tasting event, Choice Eats, by curating local beers unique to New York City, mixed with a portfolio of beers from around the globe all under one roof for one day.
Brooklyn Pour will offer all guests a complimentary tasting of all beers, a souvenir glass, entertainment, live onsite beer demonstrations from the area's top brew masters and an exclusive Brooklyn Pour photo booth. VIP guests will be offered a gift bag, complimentary food, a private lounge area with private VIP bar and more.
Local fare from New York City restaurants will also be available for additional purchase. Proceeds from the event are going to Brooklyn Pour's charitable partner Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition (BARC), a nonprofit organization looking to provide a safe haven for abandoned animals and to find permanent loving homes for them.
VIP Tickets: $65
General Admission: $45
