Heading for The Gate

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

My small-scale part-time brewery will be heading for the gate this Sunday, with The Gate being the bar in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Dogfish Head Craft Brewery founder Sam Calagione will be giving a talk there as part of the annual The New Yorker Festival (this will be the first beer-related event in the festival's ten-year history), and it was decided to add a brewing demonstration to the talk. That's where my Brew-Magic and I come in, I'll be trucking it in and will be Sam's brew assistant for the day as we brew a ten-gallon batch of his Raison D'Etre. I'm pretty psyched about this, but sad to report that the event is already sold out.

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
