Last night, beer lovers came together for the Third Annual Good Beer event at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where a slew of brews (including an amazing batch of salty-sour homemade from the boys at Bierkraft) were paired with pretzels and pletzels and pizza, with shrimp rolls and chopped liver and duck blinis and banh mi. It’s a safe bet that nobody left hungry! (And likely not 100 percent sober, either.) Whether you missed the action or want to spot yourself in the crowd, check out this fantastic photo gallery from the eve and this video clip from Max Flatow of all the action.
