Blue Point Cask Festival

Friday, April 16, 2010

Unfortunately, due to delays with getting my new three barrel brewery going, I won't be pouring tomorrow at the Blue Point Cask Ale Festival. (My logo is on some promotional material, but I told them a while ago I wasn't going to be able to make it. Sorry for any confusion.)

It looks like it's going to be a great event, so go if you can if you want to try some terrific real ales from
Blue Point, Long Ireland, Greenport Harbor Brewing, and the fantastic homebrewers of the Long Island Beer & Malt Enthusiasts, among others (go here for more info). I won't even get to attend, as I'll be working in the brewhouse-in-transition getting the new fermenters, etc. properly positioned, etc. I plan on being there (pouring and enjoying) next year! To those going this year, cheers!

NY(C) Craft Beer Week

August 3, 2009

The second annual "NY Craft Beer Week" is coming September 11th - 20th, but it is a NYC rather than NY-Statewide event. (I'm not finding anything about it on the New York State Brewers Association website.) It looks pretty good, and seems to be somewhat modeled after NYC's "Restaurant Week," which has been recurring for the better part of a decade. (For more, see http://www.nycbeerweek.com).

With Blue Point, Southampton, Brickhouse, Black Forest, and John Harvard's being joined by new breweries (Long Ireland, Greenport Harbor, Fire Island, Blind Bat, plus at least Great South Bay and Barrier in the works), maybe next year we can have a LI Craft Beer Week. Perhaps it could be scheduled to coincide with one of the bigger beer festivals here on Long Island, such as the North Fork Craft Beer Festival, or the Spring Craft Beer Festival. s
