Brewnity is going to bring together all the homebrew clubs and homebrew shops in the NYC area to serve beer for a great cause. The Thirsty Quaker will be there and so will the Jersey City Brew Club! Want to try some great homemade beer? Then get tickets now! Our shop will be bringing at least 20 gallons of beer, including a Strong Dark Belgian Ale, a German Blonde, a Brown Ale, and a Clove-Spiced Porter.
