Hops, Aroma and Flavor

We'll talk everything you need to know about hops - one of the main building blocks of beer. Long Island hop grower John Condzella, Kelly Taylor, of Kelso Brewing and president of the NYC Brewers Guild, and Mark Buford of Long Island's Blue Point Brewing Company join us for a guided tasting and to explain how different varieties of hops affect the bitterness, flavor and aroma of beer.

Pairing Beer and Food
July 23 at 7pm
More and more restaurants are creating tasting menus that pair with beer instead of just wine, even hiring ‘beer sommeliers’ to craft a great beer list. We’ll learn the principals of good pairing and taste a few perfect matches with guests Brendan Woodcock from Luksus At Tørst in Brooklyn, Augie Carton from New Jersey’s Carton Brewing, and Christian Pappanicholas from The Cannibal in Midtown. Featuring live music from Brooklyn roots revivalist band Victor V. Gurbo & Co.
