NYC Good Beer Passport and Giveaway

July is coming up soon (how did that happen?) and that means the sixth annual Good Beer Month in NYC. Founded by Jimmy Carbone, Good Beer Month, along with the Good Beer Seal, aims to identify the best places to get craft beer, and produce events that celebrate it. The Seal marks bars throughout the five boroughs of New York City – as well as Jersey City and Long Island – that have good selections of craft beer, are small and independently owned, and show a commitment to craft beer advocacy. Check out highlights from last year’s Good Beer Month here. (Remember two years ago when we went to all the bars in one month?)

This year, Beer Menus and Burger Conquest are collaborating with the Good Beer Seal to roll out the NYC Good Beer Passport. For $35, the passport gets you one beer or flight of beers at participating bars, from July 1 through September 1, 2014. Purchase one here – pickups are available at a Good Beer Seal bar in each borough through August 1. Part of your purchase will benefit the Food Bank for New York City and the Heritage Radio Network.

You could also enter to win one passport by commenting on this post telling us your favorite Good Beer Seal bar! We will choose one winner at random on June 27. 

A full list of Good Beer Seal bars is here. Please remember to tell us your email address, otherwise we won’t be able to contact you!
