Craft Beer Jam: New York vs. New Jersey Brew Battle

Wednesday July 13 2016 • 7:00pm - 8:30pm ET
In-person event


Diners versus dive bars. Springsteen versus Sondheim. The Parkway versus Broadway. Down the Shore versus the North Shore.

It is a competition as old as the colonies: New York vs. New Jersey. And for one night only, it’s all about the beer. 

Join us for a city-suburb smackdown where you’ll get to blind taste craft beers from brewers on both sides of the Hudson River and vote on who makes the best brew. Expect expert brewers in lively conversation, plenty of opportunities to sample their brews right along with them, and friendly rivalry between sister states. Hosted by Jimmy Carbone, owner of Jimmy’s No. 43 and host of the internet radio show “Beer Sessions Radio” and co-founder of The Good Beer Seal. This is a featured event of the 8th annual NYC July Good Beer Month.
