The best thing about the internet is that it offers a free education. If you want to know all the conspiracies surrounding the death of JFK, you can. If you want to know what the population of Papa New Guinea, you can. If you want to know what kit is needed to make beer at home, you can. In fact, we really recommend this last one. It is something that all guys should experiment with at some stage in their life.
Local and national craft brewers will be in attendance, pouring samples of their finest brews-more than 100 beers in all. The 2017 brewery lineup will surpass all years past. It will include new and award-winning breweries from Long Island as well as stellar craft breweries from across the country. Belmont Park Racetrack, home of the third and final leg of the triple crown of horse racing, will be a great backdrop for some craft beer tasting. Tickets are limited. Don’t miss out!

Saturday night brought yet another great turn out to the Cradle of Aviation Museum for this years Hops & Props beer festival. The beers and ciders were flowing with even a little rum and wine. A great night was had by all including the writers of The Guy Corner NYC and some of our friends. Music was playing throughout the night, along with lots of laughs.
So what were some of the highlights? Lets start with the meat and potatoes of why we all got together, the beer and ciders.
Well, your 31 days surviving the desert with a mouth as dry as Ghandi’s flip flop are now over, so it is time to whet that appetite and not stopping (while remaining completely responsible of course). However, it may be that your alcohol-free January has given you a sort of new found determination to stay off the booze, get in shape, keep your liver firing. That is why we are going to do everything we can to stop that from happening, and it starts with a list of must-try booze. You’ll thank us for it in the end (probably in a 4am phone call where you repeatedly use the phrase, “I love you, you’re my best friend”).
