Craft Brews Take Spotlight in Brooklyn Festival

More good news for brew fans, especially in New York: City website Gothamist is reporting that the second annual Brooklyn Pour will take place in the eponymous borough next month, bringing numerous craft breweries together for what the story calls "an epic day of drinking."

On October 6, fans can sample craft beers and ciders from around the country—with special attention dedicated to tri-state breweries like the Fire Island Beer Company and Butternuts Beer and Ale—plus local stalwarts Brooklyn Brewery and Sixpoint. All told, almost 50 breweries will present 100 plus brews.

Tickets allow three hours of unlimited samples of all beers as well as a souvenir tasting glass, demonstrations, meet & greets, beer talks and more. Food will also be available for purchase. And this year the Village Voice, which is presenting the event, will try to decrease the crowding by organizing the event into two separate "sessions," guaranteeing plenty of room. Proceeds from the event go to the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition (BARC), which fosters abandoned animals until they can find their forever homes.

And then there's the venue: Skylight One Hanson, located inside the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank Clocktower, has huge vaulted ceilings, marble columns and mosaic murals. It even has the original carved teller stations!
