Guess what? I’m posting about Brooklyn again! Yes, yet another fascinating discovery straight out of the BK! This weekend, my bf and I are heading over the bridge to brew our own beer! No we’re not officially hipsters yet, but heck, we’re getting close! As a little surprise, I was looking into going to the Brooklyn Brewery or City Winery and came across something even cooler! As much as I enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of an afternoon brewery hang, what Bitters & Esters has to offer, is something I could not refuse! The package includes three hours of brewing your own beer and hanging out in the brewery where you can BYOB and food to enjoy while you’re on the “job”. Then, two weeks later you come back for another two hours of bottling. And you don’t walk out empty-handed! Following the bottling process they give you 12 cases of your very own brew to take home and enjoy! How great is that?! I can’t wait!
They even ask you ahead of time what type of beer you want to brew and within each category there are several options, so they truly cater to your specific taste. Over the past year, I have to be honest, I’ve become a bit of a beer snob. I cannot stomach Bud Lights anymore (I think I may have overdone it in college), and I have even moved past the typical girly wheat beer (although I still love them) and onto IPA. There’s only one person to blame for that, but I will leave him unnamed. With that said, we decided on the IPA. And not just any IPA – the Disaster IPA, which they describe as a “delicious, hoppy, British style IPA”. Yaaahaa!
To kick off the weekend tonight we are going to see Lincoln with Daniel Day Lewis. Have you seen the trailer!? It looks serious but so good! What are you all planning to do this beautiful fall weekend?!
