The Great Pumpkinfest

17 Oct

While some Blind Tiger Wednesday-events feature a brewery, they’ve recently started doing style events some weeks, & this past Wednesday was the Great Pumpkinfest! 🙂 According to the write-up from the maven of the Blind Tiger, Katherine, “The … list is the sort that can make Pumpkin lovers swoon with joy, and even win over the skeptics. It’s the perfect welcome for the crisp fall weather.” Continue reading

8,000+ Miles & One Epic Beer!

22 Sep

One of the things that I love *most* about craft beer, is that its appeal has no limits. ANYONE can become infatuated with good beer. It doesn’t matter your gender or your age, what walk of life you come from… or even what part of the world!

Another thing I love, is how beautifully craft beer goes along with social media. Because there are no limits, no qualifications, no guidelines for who out there might also love good beer, you can meet anyone and immediately have a non-political, boundary-less common point of interest!

And so it was, that I “met” CurdNerd via Twitter, about a year and a half ago! According to his profile, he’s an “Obsessed cheesemonger, maker & real ale drinker.”  He also happens to live in New Zealand! Continue reading

Big Apple Beer Scene

6 Mar

BIG news, folks… The Hops Honey has been published!!!!

I recently wrote an article for a kick ass new magazine – Philly Beer Scene – on the beer scene here in NYC.  The idea was to highlight great bars for beer in the city for Philly connoisseurs who might be inclined to take a day or weekend trip up to NY.

So, without further ado, I present to you… the first article published by yours truly! 🙂

Another Wednesday, Another Trip to the BT…

16 Oct

A few weeks ago Rebecca & I headed down to the Blind Tiger after work to have some beers before we each had to go our separate ways to other plans (me to Hoboken with Amanda to listen to her high school friend play at a bar… and Rebecca to meet up with some friends for dinner!).

So it was a Wednesday, and  luckily, even though there wasn’t a formal event, they still had cheese!  Hooray!!!  So, here’s what I had!

Have YOU tried a Panty Dropper???

4 Sep

Yup, Kuhnhenn actually has seven beers in their stable that are “Panty Droppers”!

On Wednesday the Blind Tiger hosted Kuhnhenn’s NYC kick-off bash, and featured 18 of their beers on tap!  I stopped in and tried two before heading home to make dinner for the Crew… and tonight I came back to sample a few more… in the name of research 🙂
