KCBC – Brewery Highlight

Just half a block from the Jefferson L Train is KCBCKing’s County Brewers Collective. In the heart of Bushwick – a young, lively, artistic section of Brooklyn – KCBC is quickly gaining popularity at just under a year old. (Important Note: They are open Tuesday-Sunday, No Mondays!)

After more than a handful of friends (and beer acquaintances), told me they love KCBC –  I decided to pay Bushwick a visit. With rotating food stands, Drink & Draw, Crowlers, Growlers, flights and board games – there is always something new to try at KCBC. The three brewers/owners put a big emphasis on community – which is easily seen by their events, collaborations, and open nature of their space. Follow them on Instagram at @KCBCBeer for updates on new releases and events.

Tired Hands Fermentaria

After waiting entirely too long to visit Tired Hands Brewing Company – I left with a hoppy heart and an empty wallet. Just a 2-hour train ride from New York City – Tired Hands is right outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in Ardmore.

Little did I know, they have 2 locations in walking distance of one another – the Fermentaria & Brew Café. You can check out each individual tap list & food menu online for your preference – but we decided on the Fermentaria.

Rest assured that no beer was wasted nor left behind for this post – I drank the entire draft list…

BoK Apparel – Created by Beer Lovers for Beer Lovers

After scanning a few dozen beer hashtags, looking for new beer accounts to follow on Insta,  I came across BoK Apparel. I instantly fell in love with their beer designs, and I purchased the Zombie Hand Crop Top on the spot – I am obsessed. While the masterminds behind the company chose to remain anonymous, they were kind enough to answer a few questions about BoK, beer, Boston, and more. Enjoy, my beer friends!

Quench your Thirst @ Tørst NYC

This weekend we were blessed with incredibly warm weather for February in New York City – 60 degrees – woohoo! So, of course, I sat indoors on my phone, googling where to get a drink for approximately 20 minutes before I found Tørst – a Danish beer bar in Greenpoint (Tørst directly translates to thirst in case you were curious.)

With Google’s $$$$ – I was slightly nervous to try this spot out – but the beer list quickly calmed my nerves with Grimm, Jack’s Abbey, Tired Hands, and Evil Twin – just to name a few.
