Firestone Walker Night at The Ruck

Continuing on with the Troy Craft Beer Week posts, an amazing time was had at The Ruck last night. Dave and his crew have really spearheaded Troy Craft Beer Week and have been crushing it with the events. Not only did they have their Firestone Walker tap event last night, but also held their Ales vs. Lagers dinner up on the second floor. When that let out it meant we had folks from both Remarkable Liquids and Craft Beer Guild, reps from Jack’s Abby, Firestone Walker, Allagash and Troegs, Chefs from The Ruck, The City Beer Hall and Creo, staff from The Bier Abbey, World of Beer, and The City Beer Hall all hanging out celebrating the night. Awesome to say the least. Let’s check out the pics:

Belgium Comes to Cooperstown 2014

BCTC2014
Hey guys, hope everyone had a great time at BCTC this weekend. Pics are up on Facebook (I tend to do that with people focused festival pictures so friends can tag people I may not necessarily know) so if you haven’t yet make sure to head over to FB and check out the album, maybe tag a friend.

Big shout outs to Dimitrios for taking them helm with feeding our faces with delicious food the entire weekend. Sorry our laser focused attention was on drinking beer and not giving you the help you deserved. And to the crew at Remarkable, hope y’all had fun with your first year at BCTC. Always awesome hanging out with the Grimm, Stillwater, and Global Beer folks. Big thank you to Mike from Fest Pics for the invite and as always some great pics to remember the event by. One of the few events of the year where I end up in front of the camera for a change.

See everyone next year, yeah?

Hill Farmstead takes over the Capital Region

Nuzzy pouring Hill Farmstead Arthur at The Ruck
Capital Region folks, unless you were living under a rock, you know that a handful of kegs from one of my favorite breweries made their way to the taps of a few of bars in the area last week. Two kegs of Arthur and two kegs of Everett were tapped, and each of the places I visited kicked their kegs in a couple of hours or less. I’m not going to get too wordy here, although you should check out Greg’s post on the topic.
