NYC Bottle and Can Sale Mega-Weekend

Posted on October 21, 2015 by NYCBG

It’s an incredible weekend to be a craft beer lover in NYC. Besides a lineup of events that’s so stacked it’s almost hard to believe, we have enough rare bottle and can sales to satisfy even the most devoted whale hunter. Here’s a look at what’s being released in glass and aluminum in NYC this weekend:

Finback Brewery – Starchild

Finback Starchild Can ReleaseSaturday, October 24, 1:00 pm – 10:00 pm @ Finback. Details »

Finback is releasing cans of Starchild on Saturday. Starchild is a sour ale brewed with grapefruit peel. At 4.6% ABV and just 3 IBUs, Starchild is a refreshingly tart beer. From Finback:

To all you funky citizens of the universe, we introduce to you Starchild. Cruising through intergalactic space with your pucker face. Sour ale brewed with grapefruit peel.

Gun Hill Brewing Company – Barrel Aged Void of Light

Gun Hill Brewing Barrel Aged Void of Light StoutSaturday, October 24, 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm @ Gun Hill. Details »

Gun Hill’s Void of Light won a gold medal last year at GABF in the Foreign-Style Stout category. So what do you get when you take an outstanding stout and put it in barrels? Something special. Gun Hill is releasing a limited quantity of Barrel Aged Void of Light on Saturday. $15 per bottle, and two bottles per person. This is one you don’t want to miss if you can help it.

Gun Hill has this to day about non-barrel aged Void of Light:

All light vanishes here. The pitch-black color and cocoa-espresso aroma and flavor are derived from roasted barley while the complexity is enhanced by the strength of this foreign-style stout.

Other Half Brewing Co. – All Green Everything & El Dorado Single Hop IPA

Other Half All Green Everything & El Dorado CansSaturday, October 24, October 24, 10:00 am – 10:00 pm @ Other Half. Details »

The cans go on sale at 10:00 am, and will be available until they run out. Pro tip: Gaddy Lane will be on site slinging breakfast sandwiches. IPAs and breakfast sandwiches are a match made in heaven. Get there early, and go hungry.

Hudson Valley Plan Bee Farm Brewery will be making a rare NYC appearance at the Union Square Greenmarket on Saturday. They’ll be selling bottles and offering samples of their beer.
