Once again we found ourselves with a lot of spent grain after a brew day and once again it seemed like a waste to throw it away. These muffins were totally improvised with ingredients we had around the house, but they turned out great. They are also very low in sugar and fat as far as muffins go (and just in general), so you can feel good about enjoying one with a homebrew or two.

Beer at 2015 Max's Taphouse Belgian Beer Fest

All words and photos by Andrew Luberto

This Valentine’s Day weekend Belgian Beer aficionados descended on Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore for their annual Belgian Beer fest. This is the 11th year for the event and my wife and I decided to make the pilgrimage for an afternoon of some serious Belgian selections. In addition, it was the 5th year anniversary of Stillwater Brewery, so there was a healthy selection of some of their offerings for the all saison lovers out there. When we arrived at 10:30 am there was already a line down the sidewalk in anticipation of the 11:00 o’clock opening. Since it felt like arctic temperatures outside we were very thankful that the good people at Max’s had the foresight to set up heaters along the side walk–apparently a line prior to opening is something they’re used to. While on line we met people from Chicago, Italy, the Bronx, and San Francisco, a telling sign of the draw this event has.

Bryan Trottier Honored by Islanders

This is the final countdown for Long Island based fans of the New York Islanders. Next year the team will move from it’s home since 1972, the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The Isles have been giving their fans a year to remember. If you plan on heading to the “Old Barn” to watch them play you may find yourself in search of a beer. While actual “craft beer” is in short supply there is enough of it peppered throughout the Coliseum to keep those looking to “fuss” over a brew happy. Don’t forget Oyster Bay Brewing Company hooked up to create Barn Rocker with the Isles. It’s their official beer and you can read about it here.

January 16th, 2015 – The walls of Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York seemed to rock and reverberate as the celebratory chant of “YES! YES! YES!” rose from the crowd who, along with this year’s group of Islanders, celebrated their 6-3 win over the rival Pittsburgh Penguins. It is the last year that the Isles will call the “Old Barn” home and the fans have turned out in droves, at first to say goodbye but now to watch their team take the National Hockey League’s Eastern Conference by storm. With many players having come of age within the Islanders system, a bond has developed between these homegrown athletes and their loyal but long absent fan base. Everyone knows this is the end of things as they have been since the team won four straight Stanley Cup Championships in a row from 1980-1983; in that time going on a record run of 19 consecutive playoff series wins.

The Brewers Collective: 9 Brewers Unite Under One Banner

Brewers Collective When a newly licensed nanobrewery gathers it’s owners and brewers to construct tap handles, you picture a couple people sitting around a computer with renderings of a logo imposed on virtual paddles. The Brewers Collective, however, is not your average nanobrewery. All nine members have a stake and equal say in the company that is now producing beer at A Taste of Long Island in Farmingdale. So when they asked us to join them while creating their first professional tap handles, we were not surprised that the day began outdoors with a stack of 2×4’s and ended with each hand cut handle being shaped and eventually branded with The Brewers Collective logo. And when we say branded we don’t mean stamped or printed on; there was a backyard fire and poker involved. Oh, and there may have been a bow and arrow broken out at some point for a little target practice. All in all a pretty typical day with “The Collective” if you ask the members or most who know them.
