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.

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

Happy 2nd Birthday – Widow Jane Distillery

Bourbon?  Yes please?  Now that's a flip flop for me, having been weaned on Piels Light and Miller Light.  Over the past five years, however, with the explosion of the craft beer movement, coupled with fusions associated with beer and barrel-aging, the taste of bourbon has become more familiar.  So if I can enjoy bourbon barrel-aged … Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday – Widow Jane Distillery

Hops out in the Northeast – More Beer Here

“I look forward to meeting you on Saturday”, I said to Steve Miller.  A nearly 400 mile roundtrip from Eastern Pennsylvania to Springport, New York, would be well worth the time to meet Cornell University’s Cooperative Extension hops specialist.  Not only is Steve deeply committed to reviving the farming production of hops in the Northeast, he also had … Continue reading Hops out in the Northeast – More Beer Here
