Photos from the Inaugural Brooklyn Pour 2011
This past Saturday afternoon I was lucky enough to attend the first-ever Brooklyn Pour, held at Skylight One Hanson in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. This was an all-around good time and I was happy to be a part of it.
The venue was in the former Williamsburg Savings Bank, which was a very cool place to hold a beer festival. Some of the logistics were a little wonky, but still such a uniquely historic place.
He'brew's brand-new Genesis 15:15 Barrel-Aged Barleywine was among my favorite beers at the festival.
A slight disappointment was how many breweries were pouring out of bottles. Extra points to breweries like Kelso and Wandering Star who brought jockey boxes. Tap > Bottles.
Allagash's bottled offerings.
The vault of the bank also hosted additional beers and food. All in all it was a bit cramped everywhere you went, but it was still relatively easy to get any of the beers.
Troegs in the house!
Wandering Star Craft Brewery's Chris Cuzme pouring their Mild at Heart and Bish Bosh Bocktober.
Empire Brewing Company coasters, free for YOU!
The most delicious pretzels in all the land from Sigmund's. I had the 7 Chile and loved it.
Behind the teller windows is where all of the beer was on the main floor. Kinda cramped once general admission entered the fray.
