NYC Brewer's Choice

Thanks to Beer Menus for this great write up of NYC Brewer's Choice. We're happy to be a part of it!

On September 30th meet craft brewing pioneers and innovators while you enjoy and learn about their select, rare, and small-batch beers. Brewer's Choice will take place in SoHo at City Winery, an exciting venue that is an operating winery, concert venue, restaurant, and tasting space. There will be a keynote speech on the main stage with Goose Island Brewery owner Greg Hall as well as presentations by Ben Granger of Bierkraft, and Sam Merritt of the Civilization of Beer. Brewers will have tables with beer and food pairings setup. Guests will be able to walk around the City Winery and meet brewers while tasting their pairings. Beers will be paired with gourmet food provided by Sigmund Pretzels, Brooklyn Larder, Jimmy’s No. 43, Jacques Torres Chocolate, Saxelby Cheesemongers, Salumeria Bellese, High Plains Bison and many more.
