Manhattan and Roosevelt Island Homebrew Tour
Despite New York's gnat-size apartments, NYC homebrewers refuse to let space limitations detract them from their mission: crafting some of the city's tastiest beer. On this tour, you'll venture inside the homes of three of the city's finest amateur brewers, who will display their set-ups, discuss their craft and, most importantly, open up their stash of superlative beer.
Today's tour will be a doozy and, for some of you, take you places you've never been in New York. We're going to start in Roosevelt Island at the home of Brian Craine, who makes IPAs that'll knock your socks off. Next, we're going to take the tram (!) to Manhattan, then catch a bus to the Upper East Side. There, we're going to visit The Brahery--that is, Marc Gorfinkle and Andrew Blazaitis, who have a top-notch brown IPA and several golden strong ales. In addition, I'm going to break out the just-released batch of Sam Adams' head-spinning Utopias. Lastly, were going to stroll around the corner to visit Kyle Leingang, who will have treats like a rye-infused Belgian tripel and maple-pecan barley wine.
Bring a Metrocard. And eat a big lunch. Your guide is NYC beer journalist and Brewed Awakening author Joshua M. Bernstein.
