Drink Local: NYC Beer and Brewing History Panel Discussion at Covenhoven

Beer -- drinking it, brewing it and selling it -- has played a major role in the development of our fair city. Grab a pint and pull up a chair as this panel of beer experts explore NYC's rich brewing history, from the defining waves of European immigration through Prohibition and into today's slow food movement, painting a picture of a tenacious, deeply rooted and well satiated industry.

Ticket includes a generous sampling of draft beer and tasty snacks provided by Covenhoven, Brooklyn's newest bottle shop & tap room slated to officially open in March, 2014.
