Make your holiday season a little merrier with a trip to a nearly month-long Brooklyn Brewery tap takeover at Aunt Bibby’s Smoke House & Saloon in Hull. From December 1 to December 24, accompany your favorite barbecue with some of your favorite Brooklyn Brewery beers, including Brooklyn Lager, Sorachi Ace, East IPA, Brown, the vanishingly rare Brewmaster’s Reserve Ridgy Didge and Blast! Come down and fulfill all your cravings at once.
The folks at Dooby’s are doing the holidays right with beer, ugly sweaters, and camaraderie. We’ll let them take it from here:
“We’re gonna kick things off with a super casual reception, featuring fresh takes on classic holiday appetizers, such as cocktail meatballs, foie gras, devilled eggs, and much more, served alongside of bottles of the Brooklyn Lager. The sit-down portion features a mulled beet salad paired with Sorachi Ace, and a large plated holiday dinner containing roasted pig head, bacon sweet potato casserole, cranberry glaze, chestnut stuffing, crispy brussel sprouts and more, paired with Local 1. To finish, we’re gonna one-up Mom’s holiday sweets spread with chocolate cherry fruitcake with chocolate-filled prunes and candied pecans, served alongside of the Hand and Seal Barleywine. Your holiday party has never tasted so good.”
Sound good? Tickets, $60, can be reserved by emailing email@example.com
It’s becoming a tradition here at the brewery to spend one night each month guffawing at Tom Shillue and his cohort of expert storytellers. Tom, if you don’t already know, is a master tale spinner and each month he and our partners, Brooklyn Based put together a program of great, true stories from various raconteurs and call it “Tom Shillue’s Funny Story.” The show has been a hit so far, and for $10 (including a beer), it’s a real bargain too. Join us on Thursday, December 18th at 8pm for laughs and good times.
The holiday inspired stories will include offerings from:
Cory Kahaney from the Late Show with David Letterman
Marla Schultz from Girls Behaving Badly and Comics Unleashed
Jerry Portwood writer and executive editor of Out magazine

If there’s one thing we know people like as much as our beer, it’s our glassware. On December 23rd at Ashwood Bar & Kitchen, you can get both. Buy a Brooklyn Lager or Black Chocolate Stout, and keep the glass it came in.
We are partnering with Underground Arts in Philly for their event Drunk Piano – a weekly Monday night music and comedy series hosted by the legendary session player Jay Davidson. Each week, Jay invites a group of local and international touring artists to guest star, gets a few drinks in the them, and then makes them play for the masses, culminating in a jam session that lasts all night. This Vaudevillian-style series of performances has been drawing some serious musicians – Clay Sears, Doug Grigsby, Ian McGuire, Scott Coulter, Steve Wise, Jennifer Pague, TJ Kong of TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb, and Drew Nugent of Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society – to name a few. Enjoy a Brooklyn Lager with the show, they’ll be offered on special each week. Check the schedule here for more information on the weekly lineup.

While you’re there, don’t forget that Brooklyn Brewery is the Beer of the Month at all Recovery locations so every pint is just $4. We’ll see you at the game.
