Fiesta Time: Where to Party this Week
Save Our Beer, celebrate Instagram, and get down for Cinco De Mayo at this week's festivities!


Save The Beer Benefit

When: Monday April, 30th 7:30-9:30pm

Where: 79 North 11th Street, Brooklyn NY

You're probably aware that hydrofracking poses extreme public health risks, environmental threats and grave economic consequences. But did you know it's also a BUZZKILL? Literally. That's why Manhattan Young Democrats & Environmental Advocates of NY are teaming up with the Brooklyn Brewery and concerned imbibers for "Save Our Beer," a spring social at the Brooklyn Brewery to highlight the potential threat fracking poses to our pristine water supply --and therefore, our local beer supply.

So join us at Brooklyn Brewery on Monday for a pint or two in support of the cause. The beer you save could be your own. $5 donation at the door.
