From our organizers:
Beer Sessions Radio™ and the Good Beer Seal are happy to present the 9th annual NYC Brewer’s Choice™ on July 17, 2019 as the featured event of July Good Beer Month. Join us for this all-inclusive event with outdoor space, sunset views, live music, and a ton of beer tastings. This year 20 small batch brewers will come together to celebrate local grains and malts with Slow Grains!
In 2014 this event jumpstarted interest among brewers working with regional malts. Five years later the number of regional malt facilities has grown. More farmers are growing specialty grains, select bakers are using regional flour, and more breweries – from North Carolina to New York to Maine – are making beer with malt and grain that is local to them. A subtheme inspired by Andrea Stanley at Valley Malt in Massachusetts is: Ancient Grains and Kosher BBQ.
This all-inclusive event will feature 20 select breweries making beer with local grain and malt in addition to wine and spirits, plus a variety of food and live music!
