Beer Event: Brazen Head's Cask Ale Festival

Now they've gone and done it. "They" are Brazen Head and they done gone too far to smash my worlds of beer appreciation and running together. Especially, on the weekend that I'm trying to run in the NYC Marathon on 11/5. Don't they know that I'll be running through Brooklyn only a few blocks away? Ugh! Well, perhaps a post-marathon celebration will be in order over in Brooklyn. Or, some "carb loading" the night before! Or maybe a well-timed "bathroom break." ;-) =========================================================== The 10th Tri-Annual 'Cask Head' Cask Ale Festival will take place Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th November 2006 at The Brazen Head, 228 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. Expect 20 to 25 casks to be pouring over the weekend, at least 10 at a time. Many will be rare offerings not normally seen in cask in NYC. Beer will come in 10oz and 16oz measures, there's no entry fee and you pay by the glass - and prices will be a little cheaper than normal ($5/$3)! Opening hours: Noon to late. Provisional list of casks: Brooklyn Blast!
