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

13 Sep

When we visited a packed Captain Lawrence Brewing in Pleasantville, NY last August we knew they had to be itching to move into a bigger, better place.  Then, just a short while later, they did just that, moving to an even more awsomerest spot in Elmsford, NY.  So, like any devoted beer loving couple we had to check it out STAT.

When you’re driving down Saw Mill River Road, you’ll need to keep an eye out for the Captain Lawrence sign or you might miss it.  Drive around the back, park, then head up to the brewery for a good time.  Before you enter you’ll notice there’s a super fun outdoor area with a bocce ball court and picnic tables where you can sip, eat, and relax.  We had already decided this was just the best damn brewery ever before we even entered. 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.

Summer, outdoor dining, Captain Lawrence beer, pig roast? There! Coalhouse Pizza–Stamford, CT

26 May

Rain, rain go away, come again…screw that, never come again!  Haven’t you just about had it with the rain lately and all the bleakness that not even an emo kid could handle? Well, summer’s just around the corner and so are the great outdoor dining and beer paired events that Coalhouse Pizza has to offer.  This time around, June 20, we’ve got a pig roast featuring the brews of Captain Lawrence Brewing Company from nearby Pleasantville, NY.  A couple of months back we tried their Imperial (Double) IPA and it’s killah, wicked killah.  The courses highlight some of the great tastes of summer including a nice Mexican corn on the cob and an oh so slow roasted pork with smoked baked beans.  The dessert, as always, looks like it’ll be freaking redonkulous.

Scott Vacarro, the owner and brewmaster of Captain Lawrence Brewing Company will be on hand to talk about his beers and so that you may bow to him in holy reverence.  To cover up the noise of people pigging out (pun intended), classic rockers Tired on Sunday will be performing live.  Tickets, as always with Gerard’s events, are going fast.

June 20, 7 pm

$65 per person
