Half Full Joins the Dark Side + Crowdsources New Barrel-Aged Beer @ Rare Beer Night

Half Full Rare Beer

We went to our first Rare Beer Night at Half Full in July and came back for more last Wednesday, 1/15. And, while we had a great time at the first event, one or two of the limited production brews from their nano system weren’t beers that we’d drink too often because of their hoppiness (different brews for different folks).

Captain Lawrence Brewing Company Sails to Its New Home in Elmsford, NY

It only got better from there, though.

Inside you’ll find a huge tasting room with a few tables here and there (some are barrels) where people were playing cards, a line for filling up growlers, a line for purchasing beer, lines for tastings, and a line for food orders.  Yes, there’s food too. Heck yeah!  We had the choice of a meat & cheese plate, Taim hummus trio, Tierra Farms nut bowl, Slant Shack NY jerky, or marinated olive bowl.  We went with the hummus:  roasted red pepper, basil, and truffle.  All three were delicious and went well with all of the beer we tasted.
