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, November 20th at 8pm for laughs and good times.
Rudy’s is ready to switch things up and is looking for help in choosing their next dedicated line of Brooklyn beer. Come on out to Hartsdale, NY on Thursday, November 20th, to help them pick. Contending are some heavy hitters: Brooklyn Lager, Brooklyn East IPA, Brooklyn Winter Ale, and Brooklyn Pilsner. Bartenders will be accepting votes in the form of drink orders, whichever line pours the most pint wins. And just to make things fair, all Brooklyn pints will be $5.

Sorachi Ace first appeared as a Brewmaster’s Reserve, a draft-only, limited-edition beer, but we just couldn’t let it go. We convinced the brewing team to give us Sorachi Ace year-round on draft and bottle refermented in our 750mL big bottles. Now, the magic continues: Sorachi Ace is available in 12oz bottles.
Come out to Beast of Bourbon on November 21st for an unveiling of our new Sorachi Ace 12oz. Because Sorachi Ace takes its branding cues from playing cards and because playing cards are often used in magic tricks we made the obvious decision to hire a magician. That’s right, we’ll have a close-up magician on-site to perform and teach illusions right at your table to celebrate Sorachi Ace’s new trick. Don’t blink, and remember to keep your eyes on the Ace.
