The Event: Monkish meet Tørst. Tørst, meet Monkish – February 25, 2018

The Brew Sherpas headed to NYC to Tørst for the Monkish Brewing Co. tap takeover during the 2018 NYC Beer Week.  It's nearly impossible to sample Monkish beers unless you travel to their brewery in Torrance, California or have a friend generously share one with you.  Having neither, we had the perfect opportunity to sample … Continue reading The Event: Monkish meet Tørst.

What do Crypto, Beer and Portsmouth, New Hampshire Have in Common?

Round Two – Beer & Cheese Pairing for the Holidays – 2017

If we call it tradition, then it shall be so!  2017 Second Annual Christmas Eve Beer and Cheese Pairing might have surpassed 2016 (https://thebrewsherpa.com/2017/01/02/high-gravity-beer-blue-cheese-pairings/). This is likely the case for several reasons:  anticipation; experience; better understanding of all parties involved in the "event" as to the parameters are for judging (pretty much everyone is right). … Continue reading Round Two – Beer & Cheese Pairing for the Holidays – 2017

Happy 7th Birthday Untappd – Drink Socially

In 2010, the craft beer scene in New York City was in its infancy.  The undercurrents were there for massive change, and one of the catalysts of change was developing a mobile beer app in the late hours after-work.  Greg Avola lived in New York City, and worked full-time in IT at ABC News.  Greg's … Continue reading Happy 7th Birthday Untappd – Drink Socially
