May 23-May 29 in NYC beer events – my picks!

I’m at a work meeting in Orlando blogging from the iPad so this is going to be quick & a little dirty:

Tuesday the 24th: Start your evening at the Founders event at Rattle n Hum. Meet head brewer Jeremy Kosmicki & wrap your taste buds around some of these:
Pale Ale
Centennial IPA
Double Trouble
Dirty Bastard
Reds Rye
Old Curmudgeon
Backwoods Bastard
Breakfast Stout
Kentucky Breakfast Stout
Black Biscuit
Imperial Stout
Kaiser Curmudgeon
Canadian Breakfast Stout
If I were there, I’d order up the three Breakfast Stouts & do a little comparative research.
Next, head downtown & choose between:
the Sierra Nevada event at Good Beer – looks like 5 drafts & cheese or a Victory event at Spring Lounge with free brats:
On draught-
Scarlet Fire
Saaz Pilsner
Hop Wallop
Golden Monkey
Whirlwind Wit
Headwaters Pale Ale
Or head to Brooklyn for a Sixpoint tasting at Bierkraft. If you’re in more of a sit-down mood, there’s a great sounding Schneider & Sons dinner at Jimmy’s No 43 tonight.

Wednesday the 25th: Another Founder’s event: Deers & Beers with Founders at Double Windsor in Brooklyn, with venison! A much smaller list than Rattle:
Nemesis Barley Wine
Curmudgeon Old Ale
Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale
Double Trouble IPA
Cerise Cherry Fermented Ale
but, hello, house made venison charcuterie.
Ooh – and Bear Republic is at the Blind Tiger.
Cher Ami
End 10
Volks Bier
El Oso
Mai Bock
Stick Ball Alt
Racer 5
Red Rocket
Hop Rod Rye
Oh, I’m feeling a bit sad that I’m not there this week.

Thursday the 26th: Five Lagunitas taps & free pizza at Standings, ten Weyerbacher lines at Pony Bar, Harpoon at Barcade & Stone at Bierkraft:
on draft:
-Pale Ale
-Arrogant Bastard
-Ruination IPA
-Smoked Porter
-Oak Aged Bastard
-Belgio Barleywine
-Sublimely Self Righteous
-Double Bastard
on cask:
Sublimely Self Righteous

Memorial Day Weekend: good stuff. On Saturday, I’ll be joining the Malted Barley Appreciation Society for a Jersey City Pub Crawl. E-mail me if you’re interested in coming along. There’s an awesome event on Governor’s Island on Sunday & Monday:

Enjoy your 3-day weekend, drink good beer & cheers!
