Best Beer Bar? Brooklyn. Blog.

Headline makes no sense, but that alliteration tho...

March 3, 2020

Usually when I pick a topic for a blog, it's something that I'm interested in.  Not this time.  I'm taking one for the team, because I know how much people love their craft beers, and there's some info in this list that put together that might be useful to you.

They put together a list of the “Great American Beer Bars,” a.k.a. the best bar in every state according to reader feedback.  Now, I know you most likely don't give a shit what the best beer bar in Iowa is, but you might give a shit about NY/NJ/CT.  If you don't feel like clicking and scrolling, I'll tell you what they are.

New York: Covenhoven in Brooklyn.

Happy Monday everyone! We've just been awarded the best beer bar in New York state according to @craftbeerdotcom / @brewersassoc ! Thank you so much to everyone who has come to support us.

Now, I was lying a bit at the top when I said I really wasn't into craft beers.  That's not entirely true.  We got a great spot right down the street in my hometown of Rahway that's pretty damn spectacular.  It's called Wet Ticket Brewing, and their watermelon brew is the perfect summer beer.  

Our latest Test Ticket is a Milkshake IPA fortified with Peaches and Mangos. Creamy and smooth with the fruit and hops melding into a huge punch of peachy tropical flavors. Don't miss it, this one will go quick! The Galaxy Shaker is also back in cans, along with: Trolley Hopper, One Way Ticket and Kolsch. We are open THU, FRI 4-9, SAT 12-9,and SUN 1-5. #newjerseycraftbeer #njcb
