Edible East End (the shore-based sister to this magazine) and the Brooklyn Brewery invite you to the Bellmore, Long Island craft beer bar Effin Gruven on Thursday, April 26, to celebrate the Nassau and Suffolk County rollout of the latest Brewmaster Reserve release.
LONDON–For years we’d thought of this city’s lovely old-fashioned taverns and tap rooms as the holy grail of good beer, thanks to the Campaign for Real Ale launched back in 1971, when most of us Brooklynites were still guzzling Bud in squat pop-top cans. Things looked to be headed in the same direction in the U.K. until the real ale movement, now called CAMRA, was founded by four drinkers concerned about the homogenization of both the beers they were drinking and the pubs where they were being served.
Brewed Awakening—the new book chronicling America’s growing craft beer movement—was penned by Joshua Bernstein, a Brooklynite, beer brainiac and occasional Edible contributor: In fact, he’s working on a profile of Chelsea Brewing Company for Edible Manhattan January Drinks issue right now. The book is one of the top hits on our holiday gift list, so given his knowledge of craft beer, we asked Bernstein to belly up at three surprising best of class bars in Manhattan for our weekly NY1 segment. (Surprising because everyone knows that Brooklyn is the borough leading the call to great craft beer.) His sudsy trip through lower Manhattan airs today and Sunday. Can’t catch his picks on the small screen? No worries, you can find out where he goes on an even smaller one right here.
We’re just back from a trip to Spuyten Duyvil Grocery–the Williamsburg beer store in the mini-mall on Bedford Avenue at North Sixth Street–and stumbled across this beauty of a brew from Evil Twin Brewers in Denmark. We’re just sad we didn’t stumble in time for it be part of our annual Alcohol Issue, which just hit the streets.
Last spring when we were doing research for our profile of Garrett Oliver, the brewmaster for Brooklyn Brewery, we spoke to the obvious folks: Other respected craft brewers, bar owners, beverage writers and experts in the beverage. But unlike most brewer write-ups, this particular piece required a call to the editors at Oxford University Press, that ultra-prestigious publishing house that puts out every-thing-you-wanted-to-know tomes on food and drink.
