Brewmaster Oliver in the Bluegrass State

4_16_12_BB_0402_MG_6386_F

If the first alcoholic beverage that comes to mind when you think of Kentucky is bourbon, well, you’re not alone. While we know the good people of Kentucky know their way around a mint julep, we’re also pretty sure they dig craft beer, especially when it’s being poured by Brewmaster Oliver. On February 14th and 15th, Garrett will be bringing all his expertise (plus a whole lot of beer) to the Bluegrass State. Check out the entire schedule, below:

February 14th
5-6:30pm: Mini Tap Attack/Meet & Greet @ Pazzo’s Pizza Pub. Pazzo’s will be running five lines of Brooklyn beer, and Garrett will be hanging out to answer all you beer questions.

7-8:30pm: Beer Dinner @ The Village Idiot. This event, led by Garrett and featuring some very special brews, is perfect for a Valentine’s Day dinner (or, you know, treating yourself). 

9pm: Book Signing & Tap Attack @ The Beer Trappe. The Oxford Companion to Beer is the definitive guide to beer, and not only can you get your hands on it, but you can even get Garrett to sign it while you sip on some Kriek.

February 15th
10am-5pm: Craft Writing: Beer, The Digital, & Craft Culture @ University of Kentucky. The speakers of this event are a stacked group–Garrett, Teri Fahrendorf, Mitch Steele, and more–and they all want to teach you how to write about craft beer. Oh, did we mention it’s free and open to the public? Don’t miss out.

6-9pm: Tap Attack & Book Signing @ Liquor Barn Towne Center. This is your chance to say hey to Garrett, and get our latest release, Wild Streak–we know it won’t be staying on the shelves long, so get it before it’s gone!

Brooklyn Pop-Up Open In Leeds

LL_Brooklyn_popup-99-web

#UPDATE All good things must pass folks, and the clock is now ticking on our Brooklyn Brewery Pop-Up. Make sure you come out to pick up all the merchandise and specialty beers you can carry before we shut our doors. The final day will be November 15th. In the final weeks we will have surprise guests and giveaways, so make sure to keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook for updates. Cheers.

Look familiar? We’re bringing a little bit of Brooklyn, NY to Leeds, UK for our very first ever Brooklyn Brewery Pop-Up. Over the next week, month, or several months (we haven’t decided), you’ll be able to enjoy a beer list as expansive and interesting as the one in our own tasting room.  Pop in to find a selection of the following:

Lager
EIPA
Brown Ale
Pennant Ale
Pilsner
Weisse
BLAST!
Sorachi Ace
Cuvee La Boite
Pumpkin
Oktoberfest
Monster Ale
Black Chocolate Stout
BAMboozle
Mary’s Maple Porter

If that beer list isn’t enough for you, you’ll also find salvation-worthy food by Red’s True Barbecue, and brewery merch available for purchase in the Brooklyn Pop-Up store. Avoid those international shipping costs and grab something with our logo on it. The #BrooklynPopUp opened its doors over this past weekend to serve many a beer and has already receive some kind words from the locals.

The Brooklyn Pop-Up is located at 22-24 The Calls in Leeds, and is open Wednesday – Friday, 5pm-12am, Saturday 12pm-12am & Sunday 5pm-10pm. For updates, follow #BrooklynPopUp on Twitter.
