Over 300 Brews, Food, + More @ Big Brew NY Festival in White Plains

29 Dec

Your typical bar has 8 different beers on tap, of which half are usually piss-poor excuses for beer.  We won’t name any names, but you can probably guess what we’re talking ’bout.  And, even at home, maybe you have a few different brews in your fridge, but wouldn’t it be awesome to have over 300 different kinds of beer ready for drinking?

Dumb question.  Of course it would.

Beer flight at Coals in Port Chester, NY That’s where the 2014 Big Brew New York Festival comes in, held on 2/8 from 4-8:30 at the Westchester County Center in White Plains. While this festival isn’t new (it’s held twice a year in NJ), this is the first time that it’s hit NY.  You’ll be in a state of complete hoppiness with the unlimited beer tastings in your fancy schmancy 4 oz. tasting glass.  We’re talking about over 300 different brews and that doesn’t even include the special beers that will be available to VIPs.  Also, there will be lots of local restaurants on hand selling some awesome food.

Captain Lawrence Taps Into a Cure and Hosts Pig Roast – Elmsford, NY

19 Jun

Ready for two weekends of events at Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in Elmsford, just over the border in New York?  Of course you are…dumb question!

This Saturday, 6/22, marks the return of Captain Lawrence Brewing Company’s annual pig roast.  The fun goes on for six hours straight from 12-6 pm and is $40 per person online or is $50 at the door.  Your ticket purchase includes entrance to the pig roast, beer, music, cornhole, bocce, and even transportation from the Port Chester, Tarrytown, and North White Plains train stations.  Music will be provided by Rebecca Haviland & Whiskey Heart, Evan Watson’s Old Orchard Band, and Brooklyn Sugar Company.  The roast pig and other BBQ goodness will be provided by Village Dog of Tarrytown at an additional cost, but remember that your entrance fee gets you tastes of classic CLBC brews as well as some great new ones.  Think of it this way:  after just 7 brews, you’ve already made up the cost.  Besides, you’ll be helping raise money (Project Barn Raiser) for Hemlock Hill.  Buy your tickets here:  http://clbcpigroast.bpt.me.  Just a few notes:  you can park off of Executive Boulevard because they’ll be closing up their parking lot so people can hang out and chill.  You need to be 21 or older to attend and need to bring valid ID.
