I was lucky enough to have won the opportunity to be part of the first annual New York Pro Am Brew PIT. WOOHOO!
What is the New York Pro Am Brew PIT you ask? Well I’ll tell you friendo. It’s an attempt to track the every expanding work of craft brewing, from home brewer to professional brewery.
Each of the five people who have been selected have been paired with a local brewery and will spend a day with that brewery to learn from them and collaborate on a recipe.
We’ll then go and brew a 5 gallon batch of beer which will later be served at the event on August 9th at Covenhoven located at 730 Classon Avenue in Brooklyn, NY.
There will be two tasting sessions at Session 1: 1-3pm, Session 2: 3:30-5:30pm. A vote will be held and one brewer will win the Audience Choice Award who will then brew their recipe with brewer Chris Cuzme at 508 Gastrobrewery.
On top of helping me succeed, Pretzels from Pelzer’s Pretzels will be provided, and a souvenir tasting glass commemorating the event is included.
Tickets are $25 and will be available beginning Thursday, June 26 at noon at this link http://nypro-ambrewpit.brownpapertickets.com!
