NY Pro-Am Brew PIT
Jul 14, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The NY Pro-Am Brew P.I.T. (Passion. Inspiration. Technique.) is a celebration of the local beer brewing community both professional and amateur. A one-of-a-kind event featuring local brewers and the beers they inspire. It’s a chance for beer enthusiasts to get up close and personal with the local craft brewers and to taste the finest creations of the exploding local home brewing scene.
We’ve paired 5 homebrewers with 5 professional brewers. Local Craft Brewers Finback Brewery, Flagship Brewing Company, Singlecut Beersmiths, Sixpoint, and Yonkers Brewing Co. each met with a home brewer chosen via lottery. Homebrewers Sam Burlingame, Neal Hundt, Frank Lockwood, Sebastian Schinkel, and Ben Webster will create beers inspired by that meeting and serve it alongside the pros during 2 sessions on August 9th.
Additionally, there will be a pretzel from Pelzer’s Pretzels for each guest, a souvenir tasting glass commemorating the event, and some homebrew from non-competing brewers as well as local homebrew store Bitter & Esters, who are generously sponsoring the event.
1 of the participating homebrewers as decided by you will be crowned Audience Choice winner and will get to brew their recipe with Chris Cuzme at 508 Gastrobrewery.
During the event, Covenhoven’s 16 taps and extensive bottles and cans will be available for purchase
