Last Friday night, I was in Louisville, KY finishing up a week-long distillery trek at an awesome craft spirits sampler at the Distilled Spirits Epicenter. One week to the day later, I’ll get to see Mr. Ralph Erenzo, distiller and partner at Tuthilltown Spirits, again and sip on his lovely small-batch bourbons and such at the kick-off Manhattan Cocktail Classic Gala at the New York Public Library.
As I sit here, sipping this Summer Weizen Ale from Smuttynose Brewing Company and feeling a heck of a lot better about this work day, I’ll tell you reasons why you, my fellow suds lovers, should be drinking beer soon, too.
Susan Hardy and Maureen Knapp, Organic Valley dairy farmers from upstate New York, have formed an ongoing relationship with The Earth School, an eco-minded public school on East 6th Street. Two weeks ago, the farmers paid the schoolkids a visit.
