A Letter To You

Hey everyone, Many of you have been wondering why I’ve been off the radar. New York has been hit HARD!! This pandemic has been extremely overwhelming, and unfortunately I had personal issues weighing on me as well. I am no stranger to overcoming difficulties, but I needed to spend isolation in solitude to meditate and reflect. I’ve never given myself this much needed break. I’ve focused on “The Brew Babe”...

Not Beer Related, But …. Face Mask DIY

I hope everyone is staying safe! Unfortunately I had to go to the grocery store this week. I had gloves, but no mask. My mother was super worried so she made a simple DIY mask. It’s not as effective as N95, but medical studies report it offers some protection as a last resort. You’ll need a bandana and 2 rubber bands/hair bands. Hope it helps. Stay safe! 1. Fold ends of bandana so they meet in the middle. 2. Fold the...

Prost to Sierra Nevada & Weihenstephaner

Long time California-based beer company Sierra Nevada recently teamed up with the self-titled world’s oldest beer company, Germany’s Weihenstephaner to release a few autumnal inspired pours. The team up resulted in three unique beers that are the union of legacy and technology, combining old with the new to enhance and entice the palette. Fall is known for a lot of things, and as the temperature drops and heartier food hits the...

A Final Toast to Blue Point Cask Ales Fest

Today marks Blue Point Brewing’s last Cask Ales Festival at its original location. Although there is a clear split between Long Islanders who are loyal to Blue Point’s brand versus those who argue that the company sold out, neither group can deny that Blue Point and their annual festival did not have an impact on Long Island’s craft beer scene. Nobody will ever forget their first time at Blue Point Cask Ales Fest....

Thank You 1940s and Farewell

I’d like to share bittersweet news this morning with all of you. This is my last week at 1940s Brewing Co. These past 18 months flew by, but I will remember every moment, especially our milestones: beertending the day 1940s opened its doors, our first can release, and our expansion to outside sales. My father has always said that when you find a job you love, you will never work a day in your life. I can confidently say that I...

Tips for Traveling with Beer

Although I enjoy traveling across the country trying new beers, it saddens me when I can’t always take my favorite discoveries back home with me. Some of the best breweries that I’ve visited are small and don’t offer cans or bottles to take back. However, I take advantage of the opportunity with those breweries that do! With some bubble wrap and tape, you too can bring your favorite beers back with you when traveling...

Take Craft Back

Take Craft Back

About a month ago I came across the “Take Craft Back” movement that promotes the growth of craft beer by standing up to corporate breweries, such as Anheuser-Busch InBev, who are buying out smaller craft breweries. The Brewers Association (parent organization of American Homebrewers Association) organized this movement and plans on raising money through crowdfunding to buy out Anheuser-Busch InBev for $213 billion. So far,...
