Get Lit! Celebrate Hanukkah with a Different Craft Beer Each Night

You don’t have to be Jewish to know that Hanukkah is the festival of lights. According to the Talmud, in the time of the Maccabees there was only enough sacred oil for one day’s lighting of the candles. Because the Temple was purified, however, the wicks of the menorah miraculously burned for eight days.

Today, Jews symbolize that event by lighting the candles of the menorah, a new candle for each of the eight nights.

At Upright Brew House, in the West Village, the eight nights of the festival (Dec. 12 through 20) will be commemorated with a different local craft beer on tap. Each night at sundown, a bottle etched with the brewery’s logo will be placed on the Upright menorah. All Hanukkah beers will be accompanied by a complimentary order of  housemade latkes.
