Today is July 1st, and what does that mean? 1) If you weren’t certain before, rest assured you can definitely wear white shoes. 2) You’d better get your Fourth plans squared away, Firecracker. 3) NYC GOOD BEER MONTH BEGINS NOW!
The craft-brew fest firm Get Real Presents has teamed up with the New York State Brewers Association for a month-long world beer immersion program, if you will, with great local brewers like Empire, Shmaltz, and Sixpoint participating, too. Fork over $30 (the proceeds of which go toward the Mayor’s Fund for Hurricane Sandy Relief) for a Get Real Craft Beer Passport, which gives you access to taste 30 different world and New York craft beers at 30 different suds-slinging spots across of fair city in all five boroughs! A spectacular excuse to get on a subway or a ferry (yup, underdog Staten Island is in the mix too) and tap a great bar that has eluded your attention up to now.
Your passport gets you one 16 oz. pour or a flight of 4 oz. samplers at participating bars around the city. If local pub-crawling is more your speed, get your passport at Pacific Standard on 82 4th Avenue today and sip on $4 NY pints all night long (gulp!). Let the summer sippin’ safari begin.
