Let's follow Petula Clark's recommendation and drink beer downtown!

Okay, so probably 90% of you are asking, who is Petula Clark? 1. That means I'm old and 2.  That means you might not have had the pleasure of hearing her, for which I say "Thank goodness for You Tube so you can watch her singing her signature hit, Downtown*"

Anyway, we all seemed to like our last foray downtown to Tribeca Tap House (courtesy of Dallas, thanks brother!) so I was speaking this morning to Peter at Manhattan Beer Distributors and asked him to recommend another place downtown and he said he had the perfect place for us...Brinkley's Broome Street!

There, we will be able to have some great beers from New York brewers such as Captain Lawrence, Keegan's, Ithaca and South Hampton. We are also working on getting a rep from Union Beer there to do some education and perhaps some tasting. I'll keep you posted on that.

As Petula says, things will be great when we're downtown, everything is waiting for you. Hope to see you downtown on December 3rd.

Cheers!

Bill

    Love the Petula Clark reference...though I was always more partial to "My Love"

    Hey y'all- Let me know if you think there might be room to join...I need a reason to pry myself out of the office at a reasonable hour! (And what better reason than a chance to drink craft beer with the gays?)

    I would really like to go to this as a first event. I am curious in meeting this group of people.

      Welcome Bryan! You are on the waiting list...good. Inevitably someone will cancel and you will get a spot. Hope to see you there.

    I have tickets to Elton John that night. However, I did see Petula Clark in person in Paris during the 1960's. I still have the 45 rpm recording of "Downtown." I know who she is/was.
