Sir, yes, Sir! Brisket Boot Camp

Dry brisket.  Could be the bane of every BBQ enthusiast's experience.  The final result, after paying up for the best quality brisket, committing to the "low and slow", and gently tending to the biggest challenge in BBQ/smoking, was consistently dry and tough. We have tried various equipment at different price points, and finally invested in … Continue reading Sir, yes, Sir! Brisket Boot Camp

Tributary Brewing; A Love Story

So there we were in Kittery, Maine at Tributary Brewing, a full 350+ miles from home, expressly to evaluate the new beginnings of brewing legend Tod Mott. The brewery tasting room had a warm, cozy, almost like home feel, with the patrons sitting close and enjoying each other's company while sharing a pint of beer. … Continue reading Tributary Brewing; A Love Story

Lagunitas Couchtrippin’ Boston 2016

Lagunitas and the Sherpas...perfect together!  Our love affair for all things Lagunitas started in Petaluma in 2012.  First the Beer Circus, then the tasting room and tour, set the stage.  Not only is the beer first class, their approach to marketing is unique.  Stories abound regarding the naming of some of their beers, 420 lore, … Continue reading Lagunitas Couchtrippin’ Boston 2016

The Jeffrey – NYC

Visit The Jeffrey NYC for a back-to-basics experience for beer lovers in the afternoon and evening.  This venue, located under the Queensboro Bridge at 311 East 60th Street in Manhattan, appears very basic, like an old neighborhood haunt.  Combining two storefronts, this unassuming location and appearance is incredibly impressive from its tap list. It was great … Continue reading The Jeffrey – NYC

Other Half Brewing – Brooklyn, NYC

Worth the effort to find this tiny brewery in the Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn, NYC! We made the mistake of driving.  Being a born and raised New Yorker, I decided not only to drive from a luncheon at the Union League Club, but to override the GPS and not go thru the Battery Tunnel … Continue reading Other Half Brewing – Brooklyn, NYC
