A Tiny Beautiful Something

A Tiny Beautiful Something Love this beer! Super easy drinking and great hoppiness with some mild malt. Maine Beer Co makes yet another amazing brew. In other news, we obviously love Lunch but can’t wait to try some Dinner! 🙂

Beer and Food at Whole Foods Gowanus

By Eric Sturniolo   Three heirloom tomatoes.  One bushel of kale.  Four amazing beers fresh from the tap.  That was my day (minus the tomatoes and kale; I can’t cook) at the new Whole Foods in Gowanus, Brooklyn.  In the huge, shiny store, I focused on the beer and the cafe. To start your beer…

Lunch For Lunch

Eric:  I love Maine Beer Company.  Their IPA Lunch is one of my favorite IPAs (and favorite beer) of all time.  Finally, I had it on tap at Pony Bar -UES.   I taste orange, citrus, and pine.  It’s more bitter and not as juicy as Heady Topper or Jai Alai.  If you’re in NYC…

Lunch Fight

Eric:  Brewboyz drink beer together, but sometimes Brewboyz drink beer seperately (my spell check wanted to change ‘separately’ to ‘desperately’.  There’s some truth to that).     Last night, Andrew thought he was so cool drinking a Maine Beer Co. Lunch (one of our favorite beers ever).  But little did he know that I was EVEN…

Goose Island Takeover at Top Hops

All their taps were Goose Island beer, including some rare stuff.  I’ll talk about my night… Here’s the menu: I started with a glass of Matilda Lambicus, a Belgian Pale Ale fermented with brettanomyces.  The…

Collaboration Follow-upz

Andrew:  I tried the Stone Coconut R&R IPA tonight. It is a very solid IPA. Great tropical fruit. I just don’t get any distinguishable coconut taste. I’m sure it adds to the flavor of the beer, but I just don’t taste coconut itself. Next (and currently 🙂 ) is the Maine Beer Company/Nogne-O Collaboration Time…

Beer Frenzy Friday

Eric:  A leisurely stroll to deposit checks at the bank become a spontaneous beer buying frenzy.  I don’t remember most of it since I blacked out from the excitement, but two stores and $120 later, I have this: Professor Fritz Briem 1809 Berliner Weisse  x 3 Maine Beer Company MO Maine Beer Company Zoe Firestone…

In the spirit of the BrewBoyz: Collaboration Beers

Andrew: One of the more recent trends in craft brewing is collaboration. That’s when two or more brewers from different breweries work together to create a beer recipe. On rare occasions, brewers actually blend two completely unique beers together to make a new hybrid, mutant beer. I’ve recently picked up a bunch of collaboration beers…
