Sure, we all love our local, homegrown brews, but today is a day to celebrate sudsy imports from all corners of the globe. From a traditional bartender buyback to gratis biergarten pretzels and on-the-cheap draft gose, raise a glass to International Beer Day with these boozy deals.
Bierhaus: The bi-level German brew den—inspired by Munich's famed Hofbräuhaus—will give away one of their signature doughy pretzels for free with every liter of bier purchased.
Bill Baker's: This newly opened American gastropub will offer four in-house "Baker's Brews" (made locally using the chef's recipe) for $4 until 6pm. Additionally, enjoy a different bartender-selected flight every hour—either from the in-house selection or one of the 16 taps—for just $6.
Bounce Sporting Club: This sprawling, 30-screen-fitted sports lounge will offer a $2 discount on all non-American beers (both bottled and draft), including Duvel, Stella, Guinness, Hoegaarden and Amstel Light.
County Restaurant: From 5–8pm, get any beer for five bucks at this casual farm-to-table spot in Gramercy.
Grand Ferry Tavern: Sip $5 summer suds all night at this waterfront bar room in Williamsburg. Brews on offer include the Victory Summer Love Golden Ale—made with German hops—and Bell's Oarsman Ale, a Berliner Weissbier-style sip.
Jimmy's No 43: At this subterranean East Village beer temple, save $2 on two kinds of draft gose: The passionfruit-accented "I Feel the Universe" from Finback Brewery in Queens, and the Hitachino Nest Anbai Plum Weizen Gose from Japan's Kiuchi Brewery.
Pilsener Haus & Biergarten: The bartenders at this Hoboken drinks den will pick a barrel and buy a half liter back for every customer who orders food from 3–8pm.
West End Hall: This Upper West Side beer garden will offer all international beers for $5. The Bavarian pours of the day include a Radeberger Pilsner, Weihenstephaner Hefeweize and Schofferhofer Grapefruit.
