We’re known to sniff out illicit cask ales and flood the scene when special release parties hit NYC. If it’s malt-based or hop-centric, we’ll geek out on it like bees to a honeycomb.
The big event each month is “BrewYork”—yep, also the name of the group, so don’t get confused—where each person brings two of their most prized beers, such as these.
