Let me just say that it has been over a year since I did my last beer review. Have I not been drinking beer? Of course I’ve been drinking beer. Have I not sampled Continue reading
I bought this bottle because I thought it was kinda funny and it had interesting packaging. It was one of the cheapest whiskeys that I have tried to date, Continue reading
Apparently “Black” whiskey blends are a thing now. Whatever. Bushmills comes from Ireland’s oldest distillery, the aptly named Bushmills Distillery in County Antrim. Like Jameson’s Black Barrel Reserve, Black Bush is aged Continue reading
Full disclosure: I love Jameson. I began a long love affair with whiskey during my college years. I had a hard time getting drunk drinking beer because I had a lot of tummy trouble at the time and the carbonation made it difficult to drink large amounts without blowing chunks. Whiskey has been a close friend of mine ever since. Continue reading
I know that it’s belated, but I did want to wish you readers a happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I don’t have anything against the holiday per se. I very much enjoy pounding corned beef and cabbage. I love spending time with family. My paternal grandmother’s birthday often times fell on St. Patrick’s Day. BUT, I had the great displeasure of spending this past St. Patrick’s Day weekend Continue reading
New Year’s Eve is a holiday that disappoints me year after year. Not unlike Halloween, I get all amped up thinking I’m going to have an awesome time and then something inevitably goes awry. I spent the majority of NYE 2004 Continue reading
In honor of the Self Hating Hipster’s first birthday, I asked the SHH himself what the topic of the first style guide in almost a year should be. If you’re not familiar with some of the other ones I’ve written, what I like to do is talk about a style of beer, it’s background, and offer some suggestions to help you navigate the beer store so you don’t have to ask the guy at the counter, who is busy doing scratchers.

As some of you may or may not know, my birthday happens to coincide with America’s: the 4th of July. You may have also noticed that there are longer gaps in between my posts. I have been working more and writing less. My apologies. My sincerest apologies if you look to my website for regular, entertaining material. Continue reading

230 Ninth Avenue
New York, NY 10001
My ticket to this event was another Valentine’s Day gift to me this year (gurl done good!). We arrived just as the event was starting at noon. I didn’t take any pictures because I left my cell phone behind to charge, but to give you an idea of what Co. looks like…
That’s almost the entire restaurant right there with a bit of bench seating along the left wall not pictured. The event, which ran from noon until 4pm, was extremely crowded at the beginning and so my girlfriend and I posted up on the bench and acted as hybrid consumers/coat-check station. The pizza and beer was served buffet style: a quesadilla-sized slice and 4 0z. of beer served out of continuously refilled growlers. Continue reading
