Long Island Craft Beer Week Continues

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Tomorrow night, Friday May 18th, The Cortland in Bay Shore will be featuring a number of Blind Bat beers on tap for their "I Wear My Sunglasses At Night with Blind Bat Brewing Co" event (7 PM - Midnight). The First 50 People Get Limited Edition Cortland Sunglasses. (I’ll be here, but will be wearing my own sunglasses)

Bobby and Ben held on to some Hellsmoke Porter and Belfry Brown to serve for this, but I’ll also be delivering a keg of my Long Island Pale Ale and a rare keg of the Spring 2012 Long Ireland + Blind Bat Saison. The majority of the collaboration was put into 750 ML bottles, only four slim kegs (“sixtels” - which are 1/6 of a barrel, or just over 5 gallons) .

If you some of the Saison from any of the four casks which were tapped for the SimulCask on Monday, you’ll find it to be different from the keg or bottle - much higher carbonation, and colder, of course.
It’s almost a different beer via bottle or keg vs. cask.

Also on Friday night, Tap & Barrel in Smithtown will be holding a Small Craft Cask Festival. Casks are scheduled to be on from three of Long Island’s smaller breweries: Port Jeff, Spider Bite, and Blind Bat. Blind Bat will be supplying a firkin of Eye Chart Ale, Cory will be representing.
