Wythe and N. 11th in Williamsburg, or Van Dyke and Dwight Streets in Red Hook. Brooklyn has breweries, good local beers made by good local people. As far as I know, Queens does not. We do have a vineyard though! Thankfully, Brooklyn has graced us, not The Bronx, with special edition brews for Citi Field.
As my next game at Citi Field approached, a game I would go to with Mommsie, I warned her of the great beer-off.
"You better know, we will be drinking each one."
"And they have Shake Shack, you'll be eating your first Shake Shack, be prepared. It's a red pill."
"And I'll be getting Blue Smoke's pulled pork."
"Am I allowed to sit and watch the game?"
Sabroso Ale. At the counter, I learned that you can get the fries from Box Frites, but you can't get the Box Frites beer, Blanche de Queens.
about and reviewed. We tasted the sweet notes of cinnamon, and it's definitely a bitter pale ale, but much easier to drink than the Sabroso. Like all the brews, it was made to complement the food, and it achieves that mission. This ale is also available at the two Shacks in Manhattan.
Blue Smoke Original Ale. A good middle of the road, not too bitter, not too sweet, very drinkable and easy brew. I wouldn't necessarily get it again, but I wouldn't decline if offered. I hear it's also available at the restaurant.
Blanche de Brooklyn renamed. This is the European wheat beer, it is very fragrant, citrusy, and "flowery", a taste I have to be in the mood for, and Mommsie absolutely hates. Great for what it is, wheat beer lovers should head for this.
Six Point will hopefully start being served in early June. (Psst: I love Sweet Action, please bring in Sweet Action.) Time for me to get my tickets!
