For anyone who loves beer, this is a must:
6:30 pm start. A tasting of 10 specialty beers led by famed Beer writer, Michael Jackson. Finger foods will be served. This year's beers will include Cooper's
Sparkling Ales, Reissdorf Koelsh, Castelain, Saison Breukelen, Duvel, Hitachina Red Rice Beer, Scaldis, Gale's Conquest, Aventinus Eisbock and Schlenkerla. $30
in advance; $40 at the door. Tickets may be reserved by calling 718 486 7422 x107
I went to the last one and not only was it a hoot, being led by a (ahem) tipsy MJ, but the beer menu was great. I learned a lot about beer but beware of amusing MJ's diversions.
