Beer Loves Company + Hops is En Route to Long Island!


Well, it’s finally here…almost. The officially named Beer Loves Company + Hops is currently on it’s way to Condezllas Farm in Wading River, New York. Condzella Hops raised the funds to bring the European hop picker to Long Island via a Kickstarter campaign a few months ago and it is now actually in transit. We will be heading out to the farm this weekend for a Port Jeff Brewing Company beer dinner and are anxious to see how the hop plants are coming in. Before you know it, the machine formerly known as the Wolf WHE 140 Hopfen Pflückmaschine will be here and ready to start picking. And of course, Beer Loves Company will be there as well to bring you pictures, updates and a look at the first major hop harvest on Long Island in many years. 999662_490251554378927_40773889_n keep reading...

Surge Protector Sandy Relief Ale – Blue Point Brewing Company (2013)



BLC Says:
Surge Protector Sandy Relief Ale is, as you may have guessed, an ale that was brewed to help support victims of Hurricane Sandy. Among the thousands who faced damages from Sandy were Long Islands Barrier Brewing Company in Oceanside, who had the majority of their brewing equipment destroyed by flooding. The proceeds from this beer support Barrier’s rebuild as well as Long Island Cares, a local charity that has been active in the community for over 30 years. In addition to benefitting from this brew in recent years Long Island Cares has also partnered with Blue Point Brewery to collect donations during their annual Cask Fest (if you are attending this Saturday, bring something to support Long Islanders in need). keep reading...
