Fur (and beer) will fly at Beer for Beasts w/ Sixpoint Brewery and BeerAdvocate!

1 Feb

Beasts need food and love, too!

Tickets are now on sale for an awesome collaboration between Sixpoint Brewery and BeerAdvocate:  Beer for Beasts.  This is the second year of Beer for Beasts, a way to help animals through the Humane Society of NY.  Last year $30,000 was raised, so help them to meet or beat the hell out of that.  The brouhaha goes down March 31, 2012 for one of two sessions:  1-5 pm or 6-10 pm at The Bell House in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn.  Last year was sold out, so better trot on over here and get your fix for just $60 each.  21+ and valid ID needed.

Here’s why to go if you’re a beervangelist, a foodaholic, and/or just wanna get down to some dancing and music:

• One-of-a-kind beers brewed just for Beer for Beasts (over 40)

           • Barley & Chinook: a single-malt, single-hop IPA 

           • Champignon:  brown ale that’s brewed with (WOAH) chanterelle mushrooms and black pepper

           • Rock Lobster:  stein beer that’s brewed up with lobster shells from Red Hook Lobster Pound.  Wicked crazy.

           • Two wine-yeast fermented white beers that are brewed in collaboration w/ Red Hook Winery

           • English-style ale made by Jimmy Carbone and Rachel Wharton in memory of beer bar revolutionary @ d.b.a., Ray Deter

           • Best in show will be a special collaboration between founder of Sixpoint, Shane Welch, and BeerAdvocate founders Todd and Jason Alström

• Awesome street vendors such as the famously infamous Calexico Cart and Big Gay Ice Cream.  More to follow…

           • Big Gay Ice Cream will be sampling ice cream made with Sixpoint beer

• Hot to trot performances from Jersey Fresh Burlesque

• Music by “Chances with Wolves” dj crew…love the name BTW ;)
