In case you're not familiar with NYC Beer Week (which starts tonight), it's amazing. From now through March 2nd, there's going to be approximately infinity awesome, beer-centric parties, tastings, tap takeovers, drinking sessions, festivals, and all other sorts of events all over the city. Literally, if you go to a bar over the next week and a half, you'll probably end up at some sort of event by accident. If you care to take a more hands-on approach to your Beer Week bar-going, though, we've created a little Beer Week matrix to help you find an event that fits your beer-drinking proclivities.
Here's how it works: we've selected 21 events and mapped them out on two different axis-es that measure beer geek-ery and food- vs. beer-forwardness. Take a look at the blown-up version here, and then get more deets on the ones in your favorite quadrants, in the alphabetical listings below. It's on.
