The Inaugural Michael Jackson Beer & Whiskey Fest @ Brooklyn Brewery


Come to the Brooklyn Brewery on Wednesday, November 12 at 7 PM for the inaugural Michael Jackson Beer & Whiskey Fest. While many are quick to jump to the King of Pop on hearing his name, Michael Jackson was a luminary writer credited with rekindling worldwide interest in beer and whiskey through his books and articles. His influence reached many of the best and brightest in these industries, including our own Garrett Oliver. Mr. Jackson sponsored Garrett as a judge at the Great British Beer Festival in the early days of his career, and the two quickly became colleagues and peers.

To celebrate Michael Jackson’s dedication to everyone’s favorite beverages, some of New York State’s finest brewers and distillers will come together in his honor at this festival. More than twenty breweries and distilleries will provide paired pours for the evening, kicking off a collaboration between each duo that will next year will result in a barrel-aged beer from each partnership. These companies so far include:

Bites will be provided for between sips by Kickshaw Cookery, highlighting NY State ingredients. Tickets are $55, with a portion of the proceeds going toward awarding the Michael Jackson Scholarship for brewing and distilling education. Join us in this celebration of New York State’s beer and spirits and help support the next generation of brewers and distillers.

Tom Shillue’s Funny Story @ Brooklyn Brewery


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.
