This past fall we had the great pleasure of returning to Lexington Armory for the New York Craft Beer Festival – Winter Harvest.
This year had
the return of many amazing breweries, many from the New York area.
The festival also featured great food venders. The Morris Truck toted amazing grilled cheese and spicy tomato soup.
This festival we had the privilege of attending a very informative seminar on using beer in specialty cocktails and the world of bitters. Several talented bartenders showed the merits of using beer as a base, as well as covering some great beer/bitters pairings.
My favorite brewery was the 16 Mile Brewery. This brewery, based in Georgetown, DE, had quite the selection of their wonderful beers. We were able to try the Responders Ale (American Session), and the Harvest Ale (Southern English Brown Ale).
My favorite beer by far was Widmer Brothers Brrrbon. This amazing ale is brewed in bourbon barrels. It brings the wonderful taste of bourbon into an extremely drinkable dark ale. It brings a unique competitive edge to the world of craft beer with it’s bourbon twist.
