And just like that, summer is almost over. But we won’t cry into our pumpkin beers just yet, because fall means festival season!
One of the festivals we would highly recommend this fall (because we all know some of them are more trouble than they’re worth) is Brooklyn Pour. Why? Because it’s always held in a cool venue, it’s in Brooklyn (gotta be honest) and some brewers actually go to pour their beers!
2015 marks the 5th year of this Village Voice-run festival, and will feature over 100 craft brews, food, and entertainment. While the event used to be held at Skylight One Hanson (pictured above) in Fort Greene, this year it will be in Greenpoint, at the Brooklyn Expo Center. It’s Saturday, September 26, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., with VIP hour starting at 2:00 p.m. and early entry starting at 2:30.
Here are just some of the breweries that will be pouring at the event:
Braven Brewing Company
Brooklyn Brew Shop
Captain Lawrence Brewing Company
Coney Island Brewing
Empire Brewing Company
Fire Island Beer Company
Greenport Harbor Brewing co.
Rockaway Brewing Co.
Tickets can be purchased here and cost $55 for General Admission, $65 for Early Entry and $85 for VIP.
