From the Good Beer Seal folks, who just inducted Pacific Standard as a member bar:
The Good Beer Seal Celebrates July Good Beer Month 2010
July 2009, Mayor Bloomberg issued a proclamation that July is Good Beer Month in New York City. In July 2010, Bloomberg will continue to support community conscious small businesses in NYC with another Mayoral Proclamation. Indeed, July is Good Beer Month!
On May 25 of 2010, The Good Beer Seal inducted 12 new bars into its membership, swelling its ranks from 15 to 27. During July Good Beer Month, Good Beer Seal member bars in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx will be celebrating with special in-bar events, tastings, beer and food pairings, and special brewery nights. Lovers of Good Beer will be encouraged to visit all 27 Good Beer Seal bars during the month of July with the July Good Beer Month Pub Crawl Cards, which will be available in member bars. In addition to these bar-centric events, The Good Beer Seal will host Meatopia: BBQ NYC, a blowout BBQ event with Sixpoint Craft Ales on Governors Island to benefit Just Food and SlowFood NYC on July 11. Several members of The Good Beer Seal will be collaborating with Sixpoint on an exclusive smoked ale that will debut at member bars immediately following the July 11 event. The beer and food pairing extravaganza, Good Beer at BAM with Edible Manhattan, will round out the month-long celebration on July 28.

The Good Beer Seal is an association of New York craft beer bars who serve, promote and support good, craft beer. July Good Beer Month is a month long celebration of craft beer, craft beer drinkers, and the bars who love them.
