We’re stoked to announce that on April 21st at The Albany Ale & Oyster House, we’ll be hosting the first annual Hudson Valley Brewery Tap Takeover.
This past Saint Patrick’s Day we headed over to Plan Bee to brew the final installation of our traveling barrel program with Evan Watson. Evan pours a nearly-perfect pint of Guinness, and we spent the day drinking those and enjoying the beautiful scenery at his farmhouse. Somehow a beer got made that day.
“The correlation between movies and this is: You start with an idea, a script,” says Gargiulo, 40. “You build a team. You do a lot of pre-production. The shooting is intense. Then, you put it out there for people to enjoy. We have been working to get it ‘in the can,’ as they say in LA.”
In February our brewer Michael took two barrels in the back of his truck to Conneticut to brew with Derek. The beer was inspired by Lambic tradition and used a long, complicated, “turbid” mash process with raw wheat and buckwheat, and aged farm-grown hops in a long boil. The beer was transferred out to the coolship and cooled overnight in the freezing winter air.Read More
Our first brew was in January with Justin and Adam at Sloop Brewing Co. in Elizaville, NY. Justin and Adam make some of the juiciest, brightest sour beers around, and we were excited to work with them on this one.Read More
In April we flew out to Denver to brew with our friend Brian Strumke of Stillwater Artisanal. He is making beer at Crazy Mountain Brewery, which is equipped with a 50 bbl brewhouse and a range of (very large) fermenters.
