North Fork Craft Beer, BBQ and Wine Festival @ Martha Clara


This Saturday, August 10th, the 7th annual North Fork Craft Beer, BBQ and Wine Festival will take place at Martha Clara Vineyard in Riverhead, New York. The festival will run from 2 pm-6 pm, with VIP entry starting at 1 pm, giving those patrons an extra hour of tasting, eating and socializing. Unfortunately, tickets are completely sold out, though there are a few pairs floating around on Craigslist if you decide to make a last minute appearance. north fork beer fest For those of you who have your tickets purchased and ready to go, this is one of our personal favorite beer festivals so you are in for a real treat. There will be tasting booths set up from virtually all the Long Island breweries, as well as national favorites like Founders, Captain Lawrence, Jolly Pumpkin and more. Additionally, some of these booths will have timed releases of special brews (such as Goose Island Bourbon County Stout), so be sure to set a festival schedule for yourself. If for some reason you need a break from beer, there will also be selections from several Long Island wineries and food supplied by Maple Tree BBQ. We will be pouring our Hopless Romantic gruit we brewed with Frank F of “Big C Brewery” as well as a small selection of BLC ciders at the Long Island Beer & Malt Enthusiasts table. The gruit is a summer take on our Saint Remo while the ciders were our first venture into the genre, inspired by a seminar we attended at the AHA Conference. In addition to (hopefully) delicious beverages, we will also have custom made “Beer Loves Long Island” T-shirts and an array of buttons for sale. We hope to see everyone there, as it is sure to be a day filled with good beer, food and company. blcshirtbuttons
