HUDSON SQUARE — The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space on Charlton Street is holding three events featuring craft beer tastings in July in honor of Good Beer Month.
The first event, on Wednesday, July 13, pits New York against New Jersey, with beer-makers from both states offering up tastes of their products for a vote, according to a listing for the event.
The following Wednesday will feature brewers who are reviving 18th-century methods in their production, including Bridge and Tunnel Brewery from Ridgewood, New Jersey, Gun Hill Brewery from The Bronx and Harlem Brewing from Manhattan. Attendees will learn colonial drinking songs to go with their retro suds.
And the Wednesday after that will feature Hudson Valley-based "farm-to-tap" brewers who produce "primitive" beverages with only local honey, fruit, yeast, grains and barley.
Each event begins at 7 p.m. at the 44 Charlton St. event space and is hosted by Jimmy Carbone, the owner of East Village bar Jimmy's No. 42 who also hosts an internet radio show called Beer Sessions Radio.
Tickets, available online, are $25 each or $60 for all three events and including tastings and snacks.
