Tuesday, September 23rd and Thursday, October 9th from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. will bring seven breweries to the Times Square BBQ joint for free beer tastings. On September 23rd, taste beers from four featured breweries: Red Hook, Seattle Kona, Hawaii O-mission and Oregon. On October 9th, you’ll be able to give three other brews a try: Goose Island Oktoberfest, Good Island IPA and Goose Island Honker’s will all be up for grabs. What's the catch? We're guessing Virgil's probably wants you to taste a little bit too much and order happy hour bites like their fried pickle basket or mac and cheese balls with bacon dipping sauce... But at least the beer is free! By MELISSA KRAVITZ Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Comments We're revamping our Comments section. Learn more and share your input.
