Reading and Tasting at Pacific Standard

During Craft Beer Week, on Tuesday, September 20, at 7pm, Pacific Standard and Shmaltz will present “Not Too Drunk to Read,” a Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah book release party, reading, and beer pairing. (Bonus: no actual reading is involved–Jeremy Cowan will be reading TO you from his recently released memoir, Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah.)

Six Shmaltz beers will be on tap and on special (you can buy single pints or get the “Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah” sampler to try all six in 7.5 oz glasses), and we’ll also have a free sampling of other beers that pair with the reading. There may also be a special appearance of the “Sammy Davis Jr.,”AKA a black-and-tan made with Genesis Ale! Copies of Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah will be available for purchase, and if you ask nicely, Jeremy will sign one for you. The tentative beer lineup:

–Coney Island Sword Swallower
–Coney Island Albino Python
–Coney Island Human Blockhead
–HE’BREW Genesis Ale
–HE’BREW Bittersweet Lenny’s RIPA
–Shmaltz/Ithaca/Capt Lawrence Geektoberfest

Come on by to hear an interesting story and drink some interesting beer!
