The local beer scene in New York has blown up overnight. So many taprooms is opening in NYC alone and I’m loving it. The colabs, cover art, the fresh ingredients, the frequent drops, you will never see me sipping on a major brand (Sorry Bud and Heineken) unless its a Guiness. Well our great city celebrates one week celebrating happy hops. NYC Brewers Guild presents NYC beer week 2019 . Kicking off the week, all roads leads to the Brooklyn Expo Center for Opening Week Bash. Get your tickets at nycbrewed.com . The lineup is pretty killer.
