Last night, I stopped by Proletariat, a bar in the East Village that has the city’s best selection of rare and obscure beers. I tried some delicious draft brews—the Bruery Humulus, an imperial pilsner that’s hoppy enough to compete with an IPA, and the tart and lemony Tilquin Geueuze—but I was eyeing the awesome lineup of bottles and cans behind the bar, including the bright orange Blue Mountain Kolsch 151, which looks like the cookout beer of my dreams.
Sadly I can’t transport you to a barstool over at Proletariat to take in the view, so instead I’ve rounded up the best new labels for you to ogle this week. Hope you enjoy.
