We will also be stopping by the Bluepoint Brewery for their anniversary party.

Flying Dog at RNH

Posted in Bar/Beer Talk on May 15, 2009 by RattleNHumBar

doggiestyleA little something from 

Flying Dog sales bad-ass Joe Gomez was in New York City last week. One of the events he did was a Flying Dog Beer Night at Rattle N Hum on 33rd Street (or toitty-toid street, as my Eastern European Grandma used to say – seriously). Rattle N Him is a great craft beer bar conveniently located about 4 blocks from Penn Station.

From Joe: “Rattle N Hum brought in 9 lines for the event, covering just about the whole Flying Dog lineup. Their motto is “No Crap on Tap” – and they truly live up to this. In the rear of the bar, they have a “cask/firkin” only bar. So be on the lookout for a Flying Dog firkin in the next couple months. The name? Patrick’s Burden (named after Patrick,  of Rattle N Hum).”

The style of Patrick’s Burden? According to VP of Brewing Matt Brophy, it will be Gonzo Imperial Porter “Dry hopped with something crazy”. We’ll keep you NYCers posted as it gets closer to being released.

Up Coming Brewery Tours

breweryThe next tour coming up is Southampton brewery which is on June 13th, prices for this tour will be announced asap.

For future events we plan on taking trips to the west coast, England, Belgium and Germany for beer festivals and brewery tours. How we would like to organize this is by taking $50 every two weeks or whatever suits so that the lump sum payment doesn’t seem so bad (Rattle ‘N’ Hum savings scheme) We are hoping for a trip to the Stone brewery in the winter for the strong ale fest and Belgium in the spring. We will plan all inclusive packages for as little as possible to each festival. Email me for more info –
