Let’s get ready to mumble!

Yes, the first ever Craft Beer week begins this weekend, ushering in a weeklong tribute to — and endless consumption of — New York’s best small brews.

Starting on Saturday, the festivities include “beer crawls” throughout Brooklyn, which is not only home to several hands-on brewers, but many of the bars that nurture their elixers. Participating taverns include Beer Table, Pacific Standard (pictured) and the 4th Avenue Pub in Park Slope; Bar Great Harry and Gowanus Yacht Club on Smith Street; the Brazen Head in Boerum Hill; the Gutter in Greenpoint; and Barcade and Mugs Ale House in Williamsburg.

Sixpoint Craft Ales, the Red Hook-based brewery, will have all its grog available, including the Hop Obama, an ale that sold out during the heated primary season.

“For us, participating in the crawl was a no-brainer,” said Jeff Gorlechen, the brewery’s marketing man. “We’re a craft brewer, so it all made sense.”

New York Craft Beer Week runs from Sept. 13–21. For maps and a full list of participants, visit
