The New York City area has seen a boom in homebrewing in the past couple of years. This has spawned new homebrew shops (i.e. Bitter and Esters and Brooklyn Homebrew) and recently homebrewing competitions. This Saturday September 10 Sycamore Flower Shop and Bar will host the late summer edition of Brooklyn Wort (delayed a couple of weeks due to hurricane Irene). It is a great opportunity to see what homebrewers in the area are perfecting or experimenting with. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased for either the 2 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. tastings.
