Beerded Ladies

water + hops + malt + yeast + blog

This website is devoted to craft beer reviews, sudsy events, brewery tourism, stunning beertography, bad puns, offbeat beer pairings, dispatches from behind the bar and general beverage snobbery where we can apply terms like "biscuity" and talk about hop profiles.

Meet the Ladies.

We're doing all the things for NYC Beer Week 2015!!!

The most drunken week of the year is upon us, folks, and we've got some fun events cooking over at Covenhoven. Stop by, grab a pint of locally brewed suds and be sure to say hello!

(For non-BL events (but why even?), check out our Events Calendar. We'll keep it updated as new, interesting shindigs turn up.)


Beerded Ladies and Covenhoven are proud to present two exciting NYC Beer Week bashes: Local Beer & Sammy Day (2/22), a pairing menu featuring Finback Brewery, Other Half Brewing, SingleCut Beersmiths and Grimm Artisanal Ales as well as a monster of a tap takeover showcasing the best from Brooklyn’s beloved hopheads, Other Half Brewing (2/26)!

On Sunday, February 22nd, Covenhoven will offer an exciting all day pairing menu to highlight their new cheese and sandwich program, now in full swing. The limited run menu pits four delicious New York City-brewed craft beers against three different locally sourced sandwiches and one artisanal cheese plate. These informal $12 specials will run from 1PM to close, and the collaborative brewers and food purveyors will be in attendance from 3 to 5PM. 

Beer & Sammy Day Pairing Menu (subject to change)

  • Beer: Other Half Forever Ever & Sandwich: Grilled Pepper Jack with Cilantro and Pickled Apples
  • Beer: Finback Barrel Aged BQE & Sandwich: Coffee-Rubbed Pork Shoulder with Caramelized Onions
  • Beer: SingleCut Jan Olympic White Lagrrr & Sandwich: Grilled Goat Cheese with Meyer Lemon and Ham
  • Beer: Grimm Artisanal Ales Color Field & Cheese Plate: An Array of Brooklyn Aged Cheeses (TBD)

On Thursday, February 26th at 6PM, Covenhoven will host a whopper of a tap takeover featuring a full lineup of Other Half Brewing Company’s best beers. The entire Gowanus crew will be inhouse enjoying the hop-heavy fun along with sixteen of their most precious brews for complete draft system domination.
