A beer festival where you can eat, drink and play.
Food Loves Beer Editors
1. The Venue
Held at the beautiful and historic Skylight One Hanson, formerly the Williamsburg Savings Bank (aka "the clock tower"), the Village Voice's annual Brooklyn Pour is a spectacular event in a spectacular setting.
2. The Beers
More than 125 craft breweries showcased a stellar selection of seasonal and signature beers at this year's event. It's hard to pick a favorite among so many amazing beers but some highlights for us include Shake Chocolate Porter from Boulder Beer Company that was actually reminiscent of drinking a creamy chocolate shake, Victory Brewing Company's Festbier, and SYI1 Saison from Transmitter Brewing.
3. The Food
Complimentary fare from Ovelia Psistaria, Roni-Sue, SCRATCHbread, and Whole Foods was served in the VIP Mezzanine, while pizza (Valducci's Famous Original NYC Pizza), grilled cheese (Gorilla Cheese NYC), and Philly cheesesteak (Phil's Steaks) were available for purchase in the food truck courtyard.
4. The Fun
While sampling beers is the obvious highlight of this event, attendees could also get their entertain on with an abundance of fun and games including a photo booth, beer pong, basketball toss, and air hockey.
5. The People
Nothing gets the adrenaline going like a roomful of people having a blast, but we're just happy to have caught up with our friend Chris Cuzme from 508 Gastrobrewery.
