Hey Nation! Squigs here. Had the pleasure of dropping in on our pals at Alewife NYC for their epic Barrier Brewing tap takeover. If you're not familiar with Barrier, you can get the lowdown via our video feature from earlier this year. (Click here!) They were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, but as you can see, they are back, stronger than ever.
The tap takeover tonight featured 30 (or 31) unique brews, all wonderful examples of an incredibly diverse range of styles. My time was limited, dadblurmit! But I decided I was in the mood for hops. I so loved the Hop Cone Jones wet hop saison (wow), the good ol' standby Money IPA (WOW), and the Daddy Mother F(lippin') Warbucks double IPA on cask (DOUBLE WOW)! And everything else sounded fantastic as well. I really need to get back to the amazing Alewife very soon. (See our feature on them here.)
Rock on Barrier! You're doing great.
