NYC Beer Week is back beginning Feb. 19, and with almost 400 events going on at 250 venues around the city there’s more to do and drink than is possible (or advisable). From traditional beer pairings like trivia and dinner parties to 101 and master classes, if you want to know something about beer, somebody will be happy to teach you, usually by putting a drink in your hand.

Feb. 23, 7-10 p.m.
KelSo Beer Company Tap Room, 529 Waverly Ave., Brooklyn
The culmination of a project that started on the day of the Epiphany (Jan. 6), KelSo gave about 50 homebrewers free wort (the liquid from mashed malt that will become beer) to ferment and create in their own styles, which will all be tapped and tasted alongside KelSo’s own brew.
