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! 🙂

26 Nov

Behold, the bounty of beer & cheese that brought 5 girls together on a rainy Monday night in Brooklyn!!!

In the spring I hosted a Girl’s Dinner at my friend’s place while I was house-sitting for them, and decided that the beginning of fall was another perfect opportunity to do it again!  This time though, given my new-found blogging & beer obsession, my age-old love of cheese, and my desire to bring more girls into the beer-loving fold, I decided to do a beer & cheese pairing/sampling, to be followed by some yummy fall-themed dishes!

49 Beers in 4 hours!

Clearly I didn’t drink 49 FULL beers in four hours; otherwise this post would likely be about an arrest, a serious injury, or a stomach pumping!

On Friday night I went up to the Park Ave Armory for the opening night session of the 7th annual Great World Beer Festival!  45 brewers were represented and it was totally amazing!  I had never been to the armory before and if you haven’t either I suggest finding an excuse to go, because it’s a really cool mess of contrasts!  You walk in and the entrance is seriously old school… there’s a gorgeous huge staircase leading upstairs and chandeliers and dark wood everywhere, and it really is just gorgeous.  Then, you go into the area where the event is, and it’s basically like a big airplane hanger!  Big, open, empty and totally beat up.  There seem to be some sort of bleacher seats up above at one end, but other than that it’s just this great big domed-ceiling open space!
