Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Who’s ready for one of America’s favorite drinking holiday weekends?

A few weeks back, my family took an impromptu girls weekend to Ohio. While my family (apart from my father) are much less interested in the beer scene, it did not take much convincing to stop into Quarter Barrel. And we all loved it so much – we went in again and again.

Just half a block from the Jefferson L Train is KCBC – King’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.

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…

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!

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.
