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 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!
It's time for SCHOOL OF HOPS to hit the Brew Kettle, then the Fermentation Tanks!
THE DAY HAS ARRIVED. Let's head down to Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey (a short trip by fast ferry from Manhattan) to Carton Brewing, and brew the second Broadway Brew, SCHOOL OF HOPS! Join The Guys and today's Celebrity Brewers, Nehal Joshi and Jesse Swimm of the cast of School of Rock the Musical, as they get to work 'mashing in' on School of Hops. Big thank you to Augie Carton for hosting us, and to camera operators Justin 'Squigs' Robertson, Brad Burke, and Dane Agostinis! Cheers and enjoy!
The second Broadway Brew process gets underway as the cast of School of Rock the Musical meets up with brewer and owner Augie Carton of Carton Brewing, at Rattle N Hum West. But this night isn't just all fun and beer drinking, there are jobs to do: What kind of beer will the cast choose to make? What will they name it? And who have they decided that the beer will raise money for?
Each Broadway Brew is a THREE EPISODE SERIES: And for School of Rock, this is Episode One. Click onward to meet and learn more about some pretty awesome folks, and most importantly, raise money for a terrific cause. Cheers!
Many thanks to all the folks who helped out this evening, from Ashlee and Joe at Rattle N Hum West, to Erin, Brad, Jeffry, Holly and all the Broadway Brews fans. Let's BREW!
Many thanks to Ariel Min and all the good folks at Circa!
The Broadway Brews Project continues!
Just like we did with Hamilton an American Musical and Gun Hill Brewing recently, we, The Happy Hour Guys, are putting a hit Broadway show together with a local brewer, to brew a beer for Charity. Our eventual goal: The Broadway Six Pack - six shows, six beers, six amazing causes.
Brew Day is October 20th, and the release party will be...well, as soon as this kick-ass, hard-rockin' beer is ready.
Craft Beer and Broadway are together again. Cheers!
So very excited to let you guys in on this one - our second Broadway Brews Project collaboration partners will be School of Rock the Musical, and Carton Brewing! There are already tons of cool stories to tell about this one and we've barely gotten started. First episode capture is just weeks away!
Stay tuned for updates as we get the band together, create a recipe, pick a charity, and find a name for this beer - any ideas from you guys? Leave them in the comments below!
