Ain’t No Stopping Us Now – #BrewYork 7!

BrewYork 7-2

Neither snow, nor snow, nor the ridiculous amounts of snow could stop us from getting the gang back together to enjoy the finest fruits the craft beer world has to offer.  We hadn’t gathered since just before Halloween, and with cabin fever setting in, a whole bunch of new faces, and several engagements to celebrate, it was long overdue that we get together – snow be damned.

Despite the layoff and the cold, this group hasn’t lost a step, and #BrewYork 7 was a beer geek’s Valhalla.  The bottle list could bring a tear to your eye.  Talks of brewing rigs, brettanomyces, bottling methods, and beer-vacations echoed around the hallowed grounds of New Jersey Beer Company.  A MacGyver-esque method for removing a corked bottle without a corkscrew was devised.  We spontaneously booed a Budweiser Commercial in unison.  It was everything a #BrewYork event should be.
