And Mr. T and I got off to an early start last night with a trip down to One Mile House for a special keg of Hill Farmstead Everett.
Hill Farmstead is a small brewery up in Vermont that consistently churns out wonderful, elegant beers that are almost impossible to find here in NYC due to their small production and high demand. The Everett was a real treat....malty flavors of chocolate, coffee and vanilla dominated this incredibly smooth Porter, just perfect for sipping on a cold blustery day.
One Mile House is hosting a special Local Beer event tonight where some great NY breweries will be taking over the taps. You can stop in and try a flight of some great locals like Captain Lawrence, Barrier and Kelso to name a few.
But don't stop there...the city is filled with a ton of beer events this week at some of my favorite bar and restaurants in the city like Gramercy Tavern, Mugs Ale House and Birreria. You can check out all the events over at the Village Voice Website.
Craft Beer week runs until March 3rd (so a little more than a week technically) so get out there and try some suds. There's a beer for everyone...you just have to find it!
