    as one of the suburbs of the greatest city on earth (yeah, i said it)...love it or hate it, Long Island is a major part of New York...and as such gets unique distro from NYC or upstate (ya know, the bronx...hudson valley...and the like).

    Let's use this thread to talk about beer releases in the area and other assorted happenings.

    I'll get the ball started...

    * Heard about a bottle share at Jackson's in commack on 10/21
    * Goose Island cheese pairing event at Morrison's in plainview on 10/17
    * Southampton will be releasing French Country Xmas ale sometime in Nov
    * CdC (yeah, i know it isn't LI, but we are interested) was supposed to be released towards the end of September...so...any day now maybe?
    * A keg of (2 yr old) Rumpkin might be getting tapped soon at one of the better beer bars (will post if/when i get more info) - and no, bottles aren't coming that i've heard.

    i haven't heard good news on these, but no one seems to know for sure.

    and i hope to see you there.

    the word on this is that it is not ready yet. i've heard some rumblings that it might see limited distro like rosso did this year, but that is unconfirmed at this point.

    thanks for the info.

    in other news, otter creek double dose (lawsons collab) hit a few spots...get it while you can....stuff is amazing, pricey but worth it.

    some new victory stuff also hit town, dont know the deets and a new allagash sour should be coming soon.


    lets set up a LI BTers tasting soon too!

    ISO! CdC b5 was my first beer release; pretty sure I still have frozen internal organs from that night.

    That's because you did not dress up properly. Any East coaster would have anticipated the cold. Seriously though, when is CdC out? Anyone but TroyG please.

    I was actually wearing my heavy winter coat w/layers, wool socks w/boots, gloves, and a hat. But I have awful circulation, and standing around drinking beer at 1am doesn't exactly generate warmth. Some kind soul left their propane heater overnight, which is likely the only reason I didn't die that night. Good times!

    that's because you didn't get your ticket, go home, and then come back!
