Thanks for Saturday, Hellsmoke for Thursday

Sunday, August 9, 2009

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Blind Bat table yesterday at the North Fork Craft Beer Festival to say hi and try some of my beer.

In addition to that keg of Beached Blonde that I set aside to pour this coming Thursday, I'll also be bringing a keg of Hellsmoke Porter that survived Saturday. And Thursday (August 13th) means the charity beer tasting and food pairing being organized by Dave (of Dave's Bellport Cold Beer & Soda). It will be held at the Bellport Country Club to raise funds for Camp Pa-qua-tuck and local high school scholarships.

Saturday Forcast

Thursday, August 6, 2009

The 2007 and 2008 North Fork Craft Beer Festivals were blessed with perfect, sunny weather. While it looks like weather-wise, this Saturday might not be a completely sunny day, partly sunny with a high near 74 sounds pretty good. I'll be somewhere in the big tent pouring Hellsmoke Porter and Beached Blonde, will be giving my new kegs their maiden voyage.

I'm saving a keg of the Beached Blonde to pour next Thursday (August 13th) at the charity beer dinner being organized by Dave (of Dave's Bellport Cold Beer & Soda) at the Bellport Country Club to benefit local high schools and Camp Pa-qua-tuck. Come on down, it's for a good cause and promises to be a fun event, thanks to Dave's work lining up all sorts of beers from lots of great breweries.

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

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
