Lamplighter Brewing Co.

Long time no see, Beer Lovers!

Do you ever feel discouraged by your lack of productivity? (Or is this just a New Yorker thing?) I know I definitely have lately. For the last couple months, all these lovely posts have felt like a whole lot of work — instead of passion. I took a little bit of time to refresh and prioritize, but I’m back ūüôā

Anyway, enough of that. Here is my review about Lamplighter Brewing Company in Cambridge, MA (Boston)

Can’t wait to share my favorite brews, beer travel + budget travel advise, and more!

Breakside Brewing Highlight (feat. A Beerded Gentleman)

I’m back from my joyous escape from reality in the beautiful state of Oregon – and while I am happy to be back in Brooklyn, NY – I am still going through major nature withdrawals. Luckily PDX Airport had an awesome craft beer collection, so I flew home with enough Oregon-made alcohol to soften the blow.

My trip west coast was mostly spent in Hood River Рa small town about 1 hour from Portland Рwith some pretty awesome breweries including Full Sail, Double Mountain, and pFriem Family Brewers.

When I finally made it to Portland – one of my favorite cities – I stopped by one of my local loves – Breakside Brewing ‚̧

Quarter Barrel – Brewery Highlight – Oxford, Ohio

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.

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 Р I decided to pay Bushwick a visit. With rotating food stands, Drink & Draw, Crowlers, Growlers, flights and board games Рthere is always something new to try at KCBC. The three brewers/owners put a big emphasis on community Рwhich 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 РI left with a hoppy heart and an empty wallet. Just a 2-hour train ride from New York City РTired Hands is right outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in Ardmore.

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

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