We're thrilled to have an event on August 17 featuring brand-new beers from a start-up created by some of New York City's leading homebrew, cask ale, and microbrew figures. Here's some info about the brewery, Wandering Star:
Wandering Star is a start-up microbrewery in Pittsfield, western Massachusetts, the largest city in beautiful Berkshire County. The brewery is the joint effort of three transplanted brewers and craft beer enthusiasts who met in New York City's thriving craft beer scene a few years back; Chris Post, owner and founder, ex-assistant brewer at Greenpoint Beer Works (affiliated with the Heartland brewpubs), President Emeritus of The New York City Homebrewers Guild; Alex Hall, Ale Street News columnist, ex-head of the notorious Malted Barley Appreciation Society, Real Ale guru and organizer of scores of cask ale festivals in NYC and beyond; and Chris Cuzme, 2010 President of the Malted Barley Appreciation Society, co-founder of the NYC Degustation Advisory Team, one of the driving forces behind NYC Craft Beer Week.
We'll feature their Raindrop Pale Ale in cask form, as well as their Disqualified Imperial Stout, Mild at Heart mild ale, and their Alpha Pale on draft. If you want to try beer from one of the newest and best-pedigreed breweries to come to New York City, this is your chance. Of course, you'll also have a chance to meet the brewers, and we'll be doing specials on the beers all night. Save the date!
