Get Real Presents, the group behind events like Aporkalypse and Beer Balls is currently in the midst of a beer week of its own. The week, which started last Friday, showcases events that bring beer together with a food item or a dinner.
Here are the Get Real Beer Week events from tonight through this weekend.
Wednesday, September 24 Katch Brewery and Grill in Astoria Queens will have mystery tasting of five beers with a full pint of your favorite for $12. Guessing beers correctly will enter you in a raffle for tickets to events or a bar tab at Katch.
Thursday, September 26 Tommy Lasagna near Union Sqauare will pair up five Italian dishes with beers like Achel Bruin and Bronx Brewery Pale Ale. The menu is $60 per person.
Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28 Oysters and beer have been a popular pairing at events so Get Real is bringing 25 different varieties, many of which are local, to be served with a long list of Oktoberfest beers, pumpkin beers, and an impressive collection of cask beers, including a couple of oyster stouts. The Oystoberfest event will have sessions from 7-10 p.m. on Friday and 12-3 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $65.
