Pour me: The Brooklyn Pour Craft Beer Festival took over Greenpoint’s Brooklyn Expo Center on Sept. 26, with 67 breweries serving 120 varities of beer.
This means war: Bushwick brewers War Flag eventually served up a pale ale and a pilsner.
Whiskey business: Apparently, this whiskey is aged in stout barrels, while the stout gets aged in whiskey barrels. Everybody wins!
Nerd life: Beers named after “The Hobbit,” like Smaug Stout and Gollum Precious Pils, are a thing that actually exists, just not at this beer festival.
Diminishing returns: Drunk people throwing around bean bags? What could possibly go wrong?
Pretzel preparation: If you’re going to make it through a three-hour beer festival, you need some food to help out.
A brew experience: Most visitors to the Brooklyn Pour festival wanted to taste something they couldn’t find at every single bar in the borough.
End of the lines: Many, many beers were consumed that afternoon.
Six points out of six: The origin of the name remains a mystery.

The fifth annual Brooklyn Pour Craft Beer Festival brought 67 breweries and a handful of distilleries to the Brooklyn Expo Center on Sept. 26. Our drinking illustrator visited the brew-fest with his sketchbook in tow.
