Getting Drunk at the Third Annual Brooklyn Pour

The good people at the Village Voice set up shop at Skylight One Hanson in Fort Greene on Saturday for the third annual Brooklyn Pour New York Craft Beer Festival. It’s a magical event where many of the country’s premiere breweries—including many from New York—are on hand serving up samples of their beers to lots and lots of people, many of whom have beards, some of whom do this weird, sort of embarrassing thing where they tie pretzel necklaces around their neck in order to keep their stomach lined, I guess, and some of whom (more than usual this year, in fact, which was a pleasant surprise) are even of the female persuasion. If I was forced to choose a personal favorite of the many beers I sampled, I’d have to go with Money IPA from Long Island’s own Barrier Brewing. Sticky, citrusy and just a little bit sweet, it is without question one of the best beers being made in the state.
