Good Beer Month? I know good beer, I like good beer, I'd rather spend my $9 on a six pack of good beer than a case of bad beer, and when Brooklyn Homebrew opens up, I will most likely make my first attempt at brewing my own good beer. But the problem is they need help in opening up, that's where you and I come in.
Danielle and Benjamin of Brooklyn Homebrew are selling certificates good for merchandise in the future store. The best part of the deal is that the certificates are discounted; if you buy the $40 one, it's good for $50, and the $80 is good for $100! And if they don't open by June 2010, you can get a refund, but hopefully that won't be necessary. Of the 200 they originally planned to sell, at least 150 are gone already, so you better get a move on with my belated birthday gift. Click here to buy me one.
Bez at Spitzer's Corner the Thursday before my birthday, you know, when it was likely to get stuck in a torrential downpour. Yeah, one of those days. We sat, we ate, we drank beer, and then another thunderstorm hit.
Brooklyn Brewery's Local One. It's getting high marks in my book, and on Beer Advocate. It's a Belgian Pale Ale with a high alcohol per volume (9%), but that doesn't come through. The brew is spicy and sweet fruit, very similar to white wine. Since it's been a cool summer, I've found this to be quite refreshing with lighter meals. It helps that my local fave, Press 195, is carrying this.
