Want to help decide that Sixpoint Brewery from Brooklyn is both your favorite brewery and should be everyone else’s? Or perhaps Rockaway Brewing Company from Queens is your champion? It’s time to help your favorites be celebrated and perhaps discover new ones!
Come see Brookfield Place’s Winter Garden transform into a Winter Biergarten as the city’s top breweries compete in Best Brews of NYC, a five borough-wide contest of fine beers over the course of four weeks. Event goers and a jury of reputable beer connoisseurs will enjoy a competitive selection of potential prize-winning beers and come together to decide that week’s winner.
Leading the panel will be Anne Becerra (the first woman in New York City to become a Certified Cicerone) and Josh Bernstein. Beverage expert Ethan Fixell, Food & Wine magazine contributor, will be emceeing.
Make sure to join in for all the fun while helping support the city’s parks. 100% of all beer sales will be donated to New Yorkers for Parks‘ mission to build, protect, and promote parks and open spaces throughout New York City.
Best Brews of NYC takes place Thursdays 2/22, 3/1, 3/8 & 3/15 in the Winter Garden 4 – 9 PM. Free to attend, 21 and over only
