The Good Beer Seal—an association of independently owned craft-beer bars in NYC—presents this monthlong celebration of quality brews. The event has won support from on high: Back in 2009, Mayor Bloomberg officially proclaimed July to be Good Beer Month. The schedule is crammed with tastings, talks, parties and festivals; highlights include Cook Out NYC (July 7, 8), which pairs BBQ with craft suds on Governors Island; a Beer Book, Blog and Video Fest (July 25) at South Street Seaport; and Edible's annual Good Beer tasting event, featuring local grub and brews.
