The threat of hydraulic fracking in New York has struck fear in the hearts of local foodies, with groups like Chefs for the Marcellus aiming to protect local farms, food and water supplies from future drilling with anti-fracking benefit events like tomorrow's Pesto Competition. But fresh fruits and veggies aren't the only things New Yorkers might lose if Governor Cuomo lifts the current moratorium on fracking: your favorite microbrew might become a thing of the past, too.

Last year, Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, which is located right above the contentious Marcellus Shale, threatened to relocate if statewide drilling became a reality, and other breweries in New York and Pennsylvania might be forced to close up shop as well. In order to help protect local beer (and water), the Environmental Advocates of New York has joined forces with the New York Water Rangers, the Manhattan Young Democrats and the Brooklyn Young Democrats to create Save Our Beer, an anti-fracking benefit at the Brooklyn Brewery on Monday night.

There's a suggested $5 donation (a small price to pay for toxin-free suds) and all proceeds will help support the Environmental Advocates of New York's various work to fight fracking and other environmental threats. RSVP via the organization's website here.
