Looking back is always one of our favorite things to do each year - and 2017 was another great trip. We were all over the US once again, with stops in Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania and Michigan; and most importantly the Broadway Brews Project powered forward, with the release of Brews number two and three, with more to come! Get ready for 2018, and “Craft Beer for Good” with us. CHEERS!
IT'S TIME TO PARTY! School of HOPS (and School of POP!) are canned and ready for tasting; join the Guys, the School of Rock Brew Crew, Carton Brewing, Sing For Hope, and the rest of the cast of School of Rock for the release of the second Broadway Brew in our Broadway Six Pack, brewed to benefit the good folk at Sing For Hope, and their mission to provide arts education to underserved schools. Cheers! #CraftBeerForGood
It's time for The Happy Hour Guys' yearly tradition: Looking back on everywhere we've been in the past year! And 2016 was a doozy, with travels all over the USA including Texas, Montana, Michigan, Massachusetts, NYC...and speaking of NYC (and Broadway), 2016 was the first year of possibly our proudest accomplishment... THE BROADWAY BREWS PROJECT. Click play for a rundown.... and Happy New Year!
Mark, Jimmy and Squigs take the short journey from NYC to Northport NY, on Long Island; a beautiful little village with a historical part of the very bones of New York City. Also where, right in the middle of Main Street, Sand City Brewing is making craft beer that... well, it pretty much blew our minds. Click below for more about this great place and these TERRIFIC beers that will soon be much, much harder to get. This is a #WalkDontRun alert, people! GET THEE TO NORTHPORT!
It's already late up on the roof deck of Beer Authority in Midtown Manhattan, but who cares: Let's tear it up!
Time to celebrate - the first incarnation of The Broadway Brews Project has come full circle. What a journey! The plan was made, and the beer was brewed; now it's time to party. Join our Broadway Brewers and their bretheren in the cast of Hamilton an American Musical for the release of Rise Up Rye, brewed with Gun Hill Brewing in honor of Graham Windham and the Eliza Project. Biggest hit show of a generation, sure: But how will the beer taste? Click play and find out.
SPECIAL THANKS TO: The good folks at Beer Authority; Harry Berberian, from Graham Windham, and the GW volunteers; Hollis Scarborough-Rodriguez, for her party planning genius (as well as her hubby Percy); and our crackerjack shooting crew of Ben Leibert, Dane Agostinis, and Squigs.
It's a chilly day in the Bronx. And as our Hamilton Brew Crew gathers in Times Square outside the Richard Rodgers Theatre for their ride north, their compatriots up at Gun Hill Brewing company are 'mashing in' the beginnings of an experimental Rye beer that is set to change the relationship between Craft Beer, Broadway and charity...forever.
But this process cannot complete without the help of Javier Muñoz, David Guzman, and Kamille Upshaw. Click ahead for a peek behind the scenes - and the creation of Rise Up Rye. The release of this beer is Saturday night, 4/30!
(A percentage of sales of #RiseUpRye will go to @GrahamWindham, in support of the #ElizaProject. This is the #BroadwayBrewsProject!)
Brew Crew Assemble! Welcome to the Broadway Brews Project: The Happy Hour Guys are putting together Hamilton an American Musical and Gun Hill Brewing of the Bronx, to brew a special one-off #CraftBeer for charity!
It's after showtime at 5 Napkin Burger in Midtown Manhattan, and members of the cast of Hamilton, The Happy Hour Guys, and Gun Hill Brewing meet up for great food and drink to discuss the recipe of their beer, what they might name it, and most importantly, who they'll be raising money for. Let's meet our brain trust!
HUGE thanks to our friends at 5 Napkin Burger Midtown for hosting us for the evening, and to Justin 'Squigs' Robertson, Dane Agostinis, Jeffry Denman and Ben Leibert on the lenses!
