Hot toddies, spiked eggnog and buttered rum are holiday classics, but here’s what to sip when January hits.
If you joined us at Good Beer 2013 in July, you already know that the evening was a knockout. The room was packed with a sold-out crowd and over 60 of our favorite restaurant, food, and drink artisans, in addition to cider makers, spirit brands, and (of course) terrific breweries.
When we think about all the fantastic, frothy, hoppy goodness coming our way at the end of the month, we can barely stein it! We mean stand it! See? Beer on the brain.
Our friends at Brooklyn Based and Brooklyn Brewery sure know how to throw a good party. Every summer they pick some worthy Brooklyn neighborhoods for their Immersion tour and then give away loads of tickets good for free beer samples and deals at bars, restaurants and shops in that area. This year: Red Hook.
Hungry? Our events calendar has loads of Edible events around the city, like this weekend’s Food Book Fair at the Wythe Hotel. Here’s what’s happening this week.

This weekend St. John Frizell, owner and bartender at Red Hook’s fab bar and restaurant Fort Defiance, will be teaching a class called “FIRE IN THE BOWL!: Hot Drinks for Long Nights” at the Intercourse, also in Red Hook. We’re big fans of hot punch, ‘specially this time of year, and thought we’d pass along the class description.
Many of our friends in Red Hook, like St. Frizell, owner of the area’s much beloved cafe and bar Fort Defiance, are struggling to get their businesses up and running again. Frizell reached out with this plea for help rebuilding, which we thought we’d share:
If you’re like many of us that have spent the last few days high and dry with power in interior Brooklyn, the images of Hurricane Sandy you’ve seen on TV might still feel a bit surreal. But for our friends in Red Hook, it’s been anything but.
With Sandy’s winds and surges gone, St. John Frizell, owner of Red Hook’s much beloved cafe and bar Fort Defiance, must contend with the buckets (gallons? tons? How does one quantify a flooded room?) of water left in the basement.
Climb aboard your favorite chair.
If you weren’t at 82Mercer last Tuesday, bummer. You missed out on some seriously Good Beer and food.
