Studies have shown that drinking beer can help prevent all kinds of ailments, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, reduce anxiety, and even improve cognitive function. Though we especially have our doubts about that last one, the point is is that this evening’s fourth annual Good Beer festival is one you can’t afford to miss. Presented by Edible Manhattan, the tasting event offers beers and ciders from about 30 brewers including Greenport Harbor, Ommegang, and Crabbie’s Ginger Beer to be paired with food from just as many vendors, including Brooklyn Cured, the Meat Hook, and Mile End. Cheers!
