NYC Brewers Pro-Am - 2 Sessions

Brew to Share and Bitter & Esters are proud to present the 2nd Annual NYC Brewers Pro-Am. Mark your calendars for Saturday June 27! We will once again pair local professional brewers with advanced homebrewers. The amateurs will get the chance to tour a professional brewery and sit down with a brewer to talk about passion, inspiration and technique. The homebrewers with collaborate on a recipe with the pros and will be able to brew that beer on their pilot system.

Those collaboration beers will be served at Covenhoven on June 27th alongside a beer made by each pro brewer and one by each homebrewer. The winner, as decided by the audience, will then brew a full-size commercial batch of the beer which will be on sale to the public. It's a one-of-a-kind opportunity and speaks to the essence of community that defines the NYC beer scene.

Professional Brewers participating this year include Finback, Greenpoint Beer and Ale Co., Other Half Brewing Co., Rockaway Brewing Co., and Sixpoint. 

Session 1 is from 1pm to 3pm.

Session 2 is from 3:30 to 5:30.

Beer will also be available for purchase from Covenhoven's 16 taps and large bottle and can selection. Growler fills are available for purchase on select tap lines. 

Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased online here.
