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! 🙂

Red, White & Dogfish Head

22 Sep

Last Tuesday night was a looooong night!  I went to a fashion show & after party with my friend Amanda, and then decided to pop over to the BT to see what was left from their Dogfish Head event.  When I got there Oz told me that they had already kicked about 9 kegs!!!  Great news for them… but bad news for me, because my first three choices were gone… but don’t worry, I recovered quickly 🙂
