2013 North Fork Craft Beer, BBQ and Wine Festival at Martha Clara Vineyards Wrap-Up (or Should we Say Bandage-Up?)


So the North Fork Craft Beer, BBQ and Wine Fest held at Martha Clara Vineyards has come and gone for another year. This event truly has a lot going on with the beer, BBQ and to some extent wine (also some cider and mead showed up as well).

Gallons upon gallons of great beer was being served the entire day by breweries from around the country while music played, friends got friendy with it and pigs were roasted on spits. We here at BLC were able to sell our Beer Loves Long Island shirts as well as a variety of our buttons throughout the event.

We were lucky enough to have the opportunity not only pour our newest ale Hopless Romantic (an herbal gruit) at the Long Island Beer and Malt Enthusiasts table but we also were able serve several different versions of our cider at the Brewers East End Revival table too. All of our boozy treats got a great reception and we went home empty handed, which we were happy about. All in all we had a good time with friends from two clubs, numerous breweries and had a chance to pour our drinks for a thirsty public while pawning off our (radical) merchandise on them.

If we had to sum the event up to you it would go like this:

So much beer!

Wow those people liked our cider.

Hey we sold some shirts!

Wow there is a lot of beer here.

Holy cow there are even more people, everywhere.

Hey look at those guys/gals hitting each other.

Yikes another fight.

Shit was wild.

Andy Calimano and Starfish Junction Productions really do know how to throw a party. We are looking forward to bringing even more beer and cider to next year’s event with a bunch more Beer Loves Company merch. See you next year Martha Clara/hordes of people/brawlers (we will think of you fondly until then <3).
