This past Friday, New York Craft Beer Week kicked off with a scream as Freaktoberfest took over Southpaw in Park Slope Brooklyn. Sponsored by Shmaltz Brewing Company, Freaktoberfest featured a plethora of beers, bands and of course, freaks like the remarkable Donny Vomit above. If you haven't seen Donny's act yet, I won't spoil it for you, but lets just say that he uses that drill very...interestingly.
Southpaw was packed to the gills with beer geeks celebrating the start of the 4th Annual New York Craft Beer Week.
Beers came from all over the place at Freaktoberfest, with some of my favorite offerings coming from Smuttynose, Kelso, Sierra Nevada and Victory.
Mr. Chris Cuzme was there to represent his new brewery, Wandering Star. Great stuff. Seek them out if you haven't had them yet.
My hang partners for the night, Giancarlo & Sarah of Beer Union. Check out their coverage of Freaktoberfest as well.
