Craft Beer and Food Festival

We took a break from working around the brewery Sunday night and headed up to the Craft Beer & Food Festival in NYC.  The event was organized by Get Real NY and it was one of the better local beer events we’ve attended.  They had 80+ cask conditioned commercial beers and a number of excellent beers brewed and served by local homebrewers.    

Some of the more interesting non-commercial beers we tasted were from the Bierkraft table.  They were serving a robust porter straight from a second use bourbon barrel and had a 20+% ABV IPA.  

Keep an eye out for the other Get Real NY events this year.  They are planning a Belgian Beer Festival in June and an event to coincide with NY Craft Beer Week in September.
