4 Spots To Visit Tonight For National Drink Beer Day
While we're usually more of a spiced cocktail crowd, Nation Drink Beer Day is surely on our list of VIP festivities. Whether you opt for a light boozy lunch or a late night pub crawl, an ice-cold beer can cheer you up anywhere and any time. What better refreshing drink than cerveza to boost our spirits on this warm Wednesday and keep us feeling joyful for a productive rest of the week. Just about every bar in NYC is celebrating today with endless happy hour deals and crunchy bar snacks – but we go for the best, so check out our exclusive selection, cool down and drink up!
Honestly though, what goes better with beer than a good tasty barbecue? The answer is: nothing. At Virgil’s Real Barbecue – located just a few steps from Times Square – guests can choose from a lengthy list of draft beers and longnecks. Whether you're more of a 'light & crispy' chick or 'full flavor' gal, this pub's got the beer for you. Boasting an expansive list of longnecks, Virgil's serves everything from lagers and pale ales to IPAs, saisons, porters, stouts and fruit beers. Plus, if you can't seem to choose, you can always go for the Flight of 3 Tastes and sample three beers of your choice! With fall season finally here and Oktoberfest in full swing, the bar serves both seasonal beers such as Sam Adam’s Oktoberfest and Brooklyn’s Oktoberfest. So really, can you think of a good reason not to visit? We didn't think so!
We all know some of the tastiest, most refreshing beers come from Mexico (or maybe we're just biased) so why not take a trip to Pampano? Thought this exciting spot already has an excellent happy hour going on Monday through Friday, today is special, and between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. it'll be a real life fiesta! Take your pick from a selection of six delicious Mexican beers including Pacifico, Victoria, Negra Modelo and more. Of course, you should definitely also try out Pampano’s signature beer cocktail, the Michelada – a Mexican staple – which is made with beer, ice and fresh-squeezed lime juice and served in a glass with a salted rim. Some people add tomato juice, Maggie sauce or even seafood! It sure can get pretty wacky, but Pampano keeps it classy and delish just the way we like it. Pair these cold babies with Pampano’s creamy guacamole and have yourself a mouthwatering and super festive National Drink Beer Day.
Sometimes you're just in the mood for something new and funky, you know? Which is why Kingsley is the perfect spot for a unique and super trendy New York bar experience. Boasting a carefully selected collection of craft beers, this hotspot is the definition of All-American authenticity. Rare selections include the Captain Lawrence Kolsch Lager (brewed in Pleasantville, New York) and the 21st Amendment Back in Black, a Black IPA brewed in San Francisco, California. The star of the show and perfect game-changer for the experimental drinker is the Hoppy Czar, a beer cocktail made with Belvedere Vodka, and a sweet and sour Pamplemousse Citrus IPA.
If you were under the impression that beer can only be sipped on at underground taverns and beach bars, you're in for one heck of a surprise. Tonight, enjoy a cold beer at the elegant Oro, Long Island City's newest modern Italian restaurant. Between 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., the restaurant will be offering bottles of Moretti, Goose Island, Becks, and Stella Artois beers which you should certainly pair with the restaurant's delightful contemporary Italian bar bites, such as (our personal favorite) the House Ground Brisket Burger Sliders topped with red wine mayonnaise, pickled shallot and mozzarella.
