Carroll Gardens and Gowanus 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 meet three of the city's finest amateur (and pro!) brewers, who will display their set-ups, discuss their craft and, most importantly, open up their stash of superlative beer.
Today's tour is going to be really fun. We'll start the tour off by visiting Jason Sahler, who is planning the forthcoming Strong Rope Brewery. In time for hop-harvest season, he'll be brewing a few fresh-hop beers--most likely a session white IPA with local wheat and a few other treats.
Next, we're headed down the road to meet Isaac Deutsch, who will be pouring a smoky Rauchbier, pale ale and perhaps a coffee stout.
Lastly, we're going to finish up in Simon Tepas' backyard. At this year's National Homebrew Competition, Simon won a silver medal for his rye-fueled double IPA. Today, he'll be serving a red IPA, hoppy wheat beer and tastes of his sour beers and burly aged Belgian quads.
Eat a big lunch. Your guide is NYC beer journalist Joshua M. Bernstein, the author of Brewed Awakening and The Complete Beer Course.
