UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
It’s still 2013, but it’s never too early to plan for Beer Week next year.
On August 25 from 2 to 5 p.m., the New York City Brewers Guild (NYCBG) will host a fundraiser Block Party for NYC Beer Week 2014 at The Well in Bushwick (which will soon be a bar and public space, right now it is an event venue).
Tickets to the event are $50, which gets you access to rare and limited beers, beer slushies from Kelvin Natural Slush Co., nail art from Nails & Ales (just look at her blog. It’s amazing), soda from GuS Grown Up Soda and a DJ set from Small Black. Here are just some of the breweries and beers that will be at the event.
