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
Porter
Double Trouble
Cerise
Dirty Bastard
Reds Rye
Old Curmudgeon
Nemesis
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
Porter
Double Trouble IPA
Cerise Cherry Fermented Ale
but, hello, house made venison charcuterie.
Ooh – and Bear Republic is at the Blind Tiger.
Cher Ami
Heritage
End 10
Carburetor
Volks Bier
El Oso
Mai Bock
Ryevalry
Stick Ball Alt
Racer 5
Red Rocket
Hop Rod Rye
Oh, I’m feeling a bit sad that I’m not there this week.

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: http://brewerspicnyc.com/.

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