French Brewery Party Tonight (10/24) & Harvest Party Saturday (10/26) at Brouwerij Lane

(sponsored)

Greenpoint’s freshest beer store, Brouwerij Lane (78 Greenpoint Ave), has a couple very exciting events happening beginning tonight and continuing this Saturday (10/26). Along with cold, crisp autumn days are freshly brewed wet hop harvest and pumpkin ales! All day Saturday, Oktober 26th, beginning at Noon, Brouwerij Lane will feature plenty of seasonally delicious beers, seasonal food and fun! There’s nothing better on a crisp autumn day than freshly brewed pumpkin ale, except when the ale is tapped from the cask and poured from an actual pumpkin!

And tonight Thursday 10/24) from 6-10pm, Brouwerij Lane will be ushering in a new era of modern French breweries with Pays Flamand.   Brewer Mathieu Lesenne will be here to share with you his wonderful beers such as the hoppy blonde Anosteké as well as his collaboration with Norway’s Nøgne Ø titled Prototype Juniper Porter. Just to sweeten the deal we’ll be pouring the Nøgne collaboration with French Brewery Page 24 a Rubarb IPA as well as  a keg of French Canadian brewery Trou Du Diable Dubai Pillée double IPA.  To compliment your sipping, we’ll be accompanied by French jams from DJ Bocky.  It’ll be a blast!
