180 - Little Italy's haunt for Italian craft beers
German biergartens and Irish pubs have long been all the rage in New York, but there’s a new type of craft beer haunt making a splash in New York: Places specializing in Italian beers. There’s La Birreria, Birreria Roma and now, 180.
180 (located at 180 Hester Street in Little Italy) is a hidden wood-burning pizza speakeasy on the second floor of a tenement that keeps its traditional rustic ambiance consistent with Manhattan’s sexy nightlife by serving a variety of Italian Craft Beers—selected to complete the Neapolitan experience—until as late as 4 am on weekends. Those looking to gather friends over brew and chew should pour the pink peppercorn-brewed Almond 22 Pink IPA (bitter herbal characters balanced with notes of sweet malt) and pair it with any number of available antipasti, such as the Piadina Romagnola (arugula-filled flat bread, prosciutto di San Daniele, Parmigiano and extra virgin olive oil). Those on the hunt for even more robust flavors should request the dry-hopped pale lager, Birrifico del Ducato Via Emilia (with floral and herbaceous hop aromas and a golden color) to complement any heavier tomato and basil dish, such as the classic Don Tonino Pizza (artfully cooked in the open kitchen’s 1000 degree wood-burning oven with house-made Mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, basil and spicy capicola).
And if you happen to be in Reno in August?
CANFEST, the Original International Canned Beer Festival, Announces Fifth Annual Event at the Peppermill Resort Hotel
RENO, Nev. (May 1, 2013)-- Canned beer gets its fifth year in the spotlight with the return of CANFEST, the world’s original international canned beer festival presented by Mammoth Brewing Company, during the height of the Reno/Tahoe summer season.
CANFEST, co-presented by The Abbi Agency, traditionally a late autumn event, will happen on August 24, 2013 at the Peppermill Resort Hotel’s Tuscany Ballroom. The 62,000 sq ft event space will play host to dozens of breweries from around the world, a live band, DJ, and a freshly designed VIP area.
“The Peppermill is creating a VIP experience that’s unlike anything we’ve offered in the past,” said event producer Ty Whitaker. “This is the first year food is included with the VIP ticket price, and we’ll even have some private tasting booths in the VIP area.”
CANFEST was the first beer festival in the world to feature only canned beer. Beers from every corner of the U.S., including fan favorites such as Anderson Valley Brewing Company, Sun King Brewing Company, Oskar Blues and international offerings from Belgium, England, and Japan are poured directly from the cans. The event celebrates the ever-growing trend of canning beer and the benefits it offers, such as protecting taste, lightening travel loads, and convenient packaging.
A portion of the event benefits the Reno Bike Project, a non-profit bicycle shop that promotes and educates the community on the importance of bike use.
Tickets are on sale now online at http://bit.ly/13tgn9e, CRAFT Wine and Beer, 775 Gastropub restaurant, and the Peppermill Resort Hotel Box Office in Reno. VIP attendees will enjoy the festivities of CANFEST from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m., a full dinner buffet, and private beer booths for $60. VIP is limited to 400 attendees. General admission attendees will enjoy the festival from 7 p.m. - 10 p.m. and ticket cost is $35 in advance, $40 at the door. All tickets enjoy unlimited tastings.
