New York City Beer Week is Happening!

Brouwerij Lane
New York City Brewers Guild has banded together for yet another New York City Beer Week! All the events kick off next Thursday, the 22nd with an opening night party at Galapagos in Brooklyn. Tickets are $45 and over 20 area breweries will be handing out samples of their brews. The beer love lasts throughout the following nine days mostly in the form of dinners all around the city, ending in one final porky beer fest.

The night of Saturday, March 2nd, Alewife NYC will play host to 'aPORKalypse Now,' a veritable orgy of beer and pork. Ten heritage pigs will be cooked up by some of the city's best chefs, and washed down with more of the newest brews. For $40, you get 10 tastings of pig and 10 tastings of beer. There will be afternoon and evening sessions, and with spring just around the corner, don't we all need to work on our day drinking?

New York City Beer Week Opening Party is Thursday the 22nd, 7pm to 10pm, at Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO (16 Main St). Tickets are available here.

aPORKalypse Now is Saturday, March 2nd, 12 noon to 3pm and 4pm to 7pm, at Alewife NYC in Long Island City (5-14 51st Ave). Tickets are available here.
