BROOKLYN, N.Y. – Other Half Brewing Company is pleased to announce the return of Green City – this year as a digital festival – to celebrate all things IPA, on Saturday, September 5, starting at 4:00 p.m. ET via Other Half’s YouTube channel.  Broccoli Boy will level up to play host to the Green City Telethon, an entertaining gathering to help “Save Beer” during the pandemic, which is open to the general public and will feature a special line-up of guests, including Other Half Crew, New York Wrestling Connection all-stars and more colorful characters; https://greencity.otherhalfbrewing.com/

In order to help bring the magic of Green City to life in the safety of the festivalgoer’s homes or backyards, Other Half created special Green City beers for guests 21+ to enjoy and follow along at home.  The Green City 24 pack will feature several cans of each beer for shipping in NY state, New Hampshire, and Washington, D.C., and will be available for Curbside Pickup on Saturday, August 29, at the Brooklyn and Finger Lakes Breweries as well as Downtown Crown, Stateline Liquors, and The Wine Source in Maryland. Limited edition Green City Expansion Packs containing 2 barrel aged and 2 fresh stouts will also be available for Curbside Pickup and shipping. Beer for shipping or pickup in the taproom will be available for pre-order starting Wednesday, August 19.

“We’re disappointed that we did not get a chance to gather together in person this year for Green City, but we’re psyched to follow the adventures of Broccoli Boy and his valiant quest to save beer,” says co-founder Sam Richardson. “We’ve gathered the gang for some fun and safe tomfoolery, including virtual delivery races, socially distant mouth pours, Stjep’s power-washing prowess and tastings led by some of our favorite beer pros, to celebrate all things hops,” says co-founder Matt Monahan.  “As we figured out how to adjust and offer a cool & engaging experience for our guests, we tapped long-time partners Catboy, Skalawag Productions and Trout Productions to help create a next-level experience for the beer community that has been so supportive of our mission,” says co-founder Andrew Burman.
