So... It's been a while! Yes, the last podcast and blogpost was way back in March, about six months ago! What happened, you ask? Full-time employment in Sept., that's what! And though B.R. is also a co-contributor, it's me, Bob, who handles the audio side of the operation, responsible for editing and formatting the podcasts.
But after almost a year into the new job, I feel that I can manage my time well enough to get us back on our weekly schedule. In fact, though we haven't posted in about half a year, we've recorded lots of features, including: the re-launched Paulaner NYC brewpub (to post by Monday!), the new Smuttynose Brewery, a few Brooklyn Brewery events (no surprise there), the new Greenport Harbor brewery, the Thirsty Quaker in Jersey City, and more!
In the meantime, we wanted to tell you about a documentary in the works about the development of the modern craft beer scene. It's called Brewland, and you can learn all about it a their Indiegogo website, where they're seeking to fund this brewdoc.

- t seems like more and more quality beer books are being published these days. In the past, aside from Michael Jackson's works, beer books tended to fall into one of two categories: the more technically-inclined style books aimed at homebrewers and fluffier, basic "beers are either ales or lagers" coffee table books. But in the past few years, the quality of beer writing has greatly improved and there are now plenty of books geared to those with more than a rudimentary knowledge of beer and brewing yet which don't alienate the newcomer. A recent entry into the field is The Great Northeast Brewery Tour - Tap into the Best Craft Breweries in New England and the Mid-Atlantic by Ben Keene with a forward by Brooklyn Brewery's Garrett Oliver.
