As a part of July Good Beer Month, Jimmy Carbone—also host of Beer Sessions Radio on the Heritage Radio Network and a Good Beer Seal co-founder—will be broadcasting live from Brooklyn tomorrow evening, before heading over to Crimson & Vine in Queens to receive the Mayor’s official July is Good Beer Month proclamation for the sixth year running. During that time, we’ve seen a tremendous growth in brewers in all five boroughs, but none more so than in Brooklyn and Queens.
Thus it is that we’ll be featuring some of our favorite Kings and Queens offerings this week, including a $20 Tuesday Tasting tomorrow night. Some of the beers we’ll include are:
From Queens -
Bridge and Tunnel’s Tiger Eyes Hazelnut Brown Ale – a 5.5% ABV English brown made with real hazelnuts
Singlecut Beersmith’s Rhapsody Wheat Pils – a 5.1% German Pilsener
Rockaway Brewing’s 1875 Pale Ale – an American Pale with nicely balanced citrus and piney notes (6% ABV)
Finback’s Fort Tildenist White IPA – a session (4% ABV) white IPA brewed with green tea, and lemon zest. Light, delicate, hoppy notes of melon, tangerine, and basil.
- KelSo’s Fuku – a Grodziskie/Gose/Lichtenhainer beer originally brewed for Momofuku, combination of Kolsch/wit/rauchbier with a touch of salt and smokey tones typical of the style (4.5% ABV)
- The Other Half’s Superfun! Pale Ale – another sessionable (4.2% ABV) American Pale Ale
We hope you’ll enjoy this battle of the brews and decide for yourself who’s making better beer: Brooklyn or Queens!
