Craft Beer Jam: Brewing Like It’s 1776

Wednesday July 20 2016 • 7:00pm - 8:30pm ET
In-person event


They probably skipped this detail in your history classes, but the Founding Fathers drank a lot of ale between all the writing and fighting that created our nation.

Raise a glass to the past at this tasting of beers from local breweries looking to the 18th century for inspiration. Expect expert brewers in lively conversation, opportunities to sample authentic early American brews they’ve created exclusively for this one night tasting event, and maybe we’ll even teach you a colonial drinking song (or two). Hosted by Jimmy Carbone, owner of Jimmy’s No. 43 and host of the internet radio show “Beer Sessions Radio” and co-founder of The Good Beer Seal* This is a featured event of the 8th annual NYC July Good Beer Month.

Tonight’s guests:

Rich Castagna, co-owner of Bridge and Tunnel Brewery (Queens, NY)

Dave Lopez, co-founder of Gun Hill Brewing (Bronx, NY)

Celeste Beatty, founder of Harlem Brewing (New York, NY)
