Beer Pairings: NHL Thanksgiving Showdown Edition Part 2: Boston

One of my dream jobs has always been to DJ hockey games. And/or drive the Zamboni.

Big Brew NY Returns To Westchester

Not all beer festivals are created equal. Big Brew NY is back for 2015 and it sounds to be an awesome time. The beer festival takes place in a single 3 and a half (or 4 and a half if you purchase a VIP ticket) hour session, which is nice because it’s not rushed, and if you are going with a few people, it’s one less thing to coordin ...
