The NY Pro-Am Brew P.I.T.

PIT LogoThe NY Pro-Am Brew P.I.T. (Philosophy. Inspiration. Technique.) is a celebration of the local beer brewing community both professional and amateur. A one-of-a-kind event featuring local brewers and the beers they inspire.

Participating home brewers (chosen via lottery from online submissions) will meet with professional local craft brewers, get a tour of their brewery, share some beer, and talk shop. The home brewer will brew a beer inspired by that meeting and serve it alongside a beer of the professional brewer’s choice at Covenhoven located at 730 Classon Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. On August 9th, there will be 2 tasting sessions. Session 1: 1-3pm, Session 2: 3:30-5:30pm.

Local Craft Brewers include Finback Brewery (Queens), Flagship Brewing (Staten Island), Singlecut Beersmiths (Queens), Sixpoint Brewery (Brooklyn), and Yonkers Brewing Co. (Yonkers). Home brewers include Sam Burlingame, Neal Hundt, Frank Lockwood, Sebastian Schinkel, and Ken Webster.

It’s a chance for beer enthusiasts to get up close and personal with the local craft brewers and to taste the finest creations of the exploding local home brewing scene. The beers the home brewers are creating today may become new favorites on tap in the future.

There will be an Audience Choice Award with one home brewer chosen to brew their recipe with brewer Chris Cuzme at 508 Gastrobrewery.

Additionally, there will be a home brew demonstration from the fine folks at Bitter and Esters, who are generously sponsoring the event. Pretzels from Pelzer’s Pretzels will be provided, and a souvenir tasting glass commemorating the event is included. Covenhoven’s 16 taps and extensive bottles and cans will be available for purchase during the event.

Tickets are $25 and will be available beginning Thursday, June 26 at noon. Purchase here!
