ADVOCACY: Edible Brooklyn presents GOOD BEER at BAM

Wednesday, July 29th 4-8 p.m.BAMcafé at Brooklyn Academy of Music, 30 Lafayette Avenue, Fort Greene.
$45 (or half price when you subscribe to Edible Brooklyn, Edible Manhattan or Edible East End)

On Wednesday, July 29, Edible Brooklyn magazine, in partnership with the just-launched Good Beer Seal, July Good Beer Month and, will throw a sudsy soiree at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Driven by the conviction that our great beer town deserves an annual bang-up beer bash—and inspired by the three-time success of Brooklyn Uncorked, our annual sold-out wine fete at BAM—we’ll serve up the best brews and, of course, top eats, too.

In contrast to the typical overwhelming swill sloshfest, Good Beer at BAM offers an intimate setting for breweries, food artisans, and we who love them, to raise a glass (or few) to the role beer plays in contemporary culinary culture. Because everyone deserves good beer, Good Beer at BAM will bring together NYC food and drink enthusiasts to sip and sup from:

* 12 to 15 breweries from New York and the region, who will pour alongside an edited list of tastes from Brooklyn and Manhattan restaurants and food makers.
* New beers brewed for the event. Expect food-focused beer premiers, cask ale from Sierra Nevada, never-before shared homebrew from the kitchen at Gramercy Tavern, beer cocktails from Back Forty, and an interborough pairing of Brooklyn Brewery beer paired with Queens County Farm pork.

* Beer bars that represent. A specially curated selection of Old Word and international beers, seldom imported and made in limited quantities, poured alongside their New World brethren by local beer bars. Tip back a Japanese white alongside the white ale from the Southampton Publick House. Enjoy an Ommegang stout next to a rare stout from England.
