Event details

To celebrate our exhibition Beer Here: Brewing New York's History, the New-York Historical Society is hosting a series of Saturday beer tastings by local breweries in the exhibition's Beer Hall, run by Starr Restaurants Catering Group. The program will run from May 26 through August 25; half-hour tastings will start at 2pm and 4pm. Not only will visitors get to taste some of these local creations, but there will be hops, whole leaf flowers and other beer ingredients for people to touch, smell and experience.

Beer at the Tasting:

The tasting will feature Nut Brown, with a rich mahogany hue and subtle hints of both chocolate and coffee; CascaZilla (Cas-kuh-zil-uh), a red ale with caramel malt and Cascade Hops; and Apricot Wheat Ale, an easy-drinking wheat beer is light in color and body with a hint of apricot.
