This Weekend in Brooklyn: @BKPour Craft Beer Fest

I really do hate to say goodbye to summer, but with the beginning of autumn comes what has become an annual tradition for me: The Village Voice Brooklyn Pour Craft Beer Festival.


Before I started going to this festival, my knowledge of beers was limited to Corona and Blue Moon! It is here that I learned about the pilsners, IPAs, stouts and lagers of the world. It really opened up my eyes — I had no idea there were so many delicious beers out there to suit my tastes — this year, 125+ beers from over 70 different brewers to be exact.

As usual, there will be demonstrations, beer talks, food court and more. And new for this year, Brooklyn Pour will feature and official BKPour Game Area, presented by Dave & Buster’s, featuring beer pong, air hockey, Beirut, basketball toss and more.

Lucky for you, tickets are still on sale for this event that will take place this Saturday, September 27, in Brooklyn. Another plus is that you get to feel really fancy and sophisticated, sipping your stouts in Brooklyn’s historic and breathtaking Skylight One Hanson, otherwise known as the old Clock Tower.
