Bell's Brewing is in NYC!


The entire New York City area craft beer community has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Michigan's Bell's Brewing...and it's here. Jimmy caught this picture of kegs of Kalamazoo Stout and Two Hearted Ale rolling into Beer Culture in midtown Manhattan just minutes ago. The Bell's launch event is ON!

Video episode #211: Travels with Thurston: The Best of 2011!

Just in time for the end of the year, Mark and Jimmy post their annual retrospective, looking back on the best (and silliest!) moments of 2011 on The Happy Hour Guys.  It's been a FANTASTIC year.  Many thanks to all those who've come on board and joined the team this year - we couldn't do this without you, especially the one and only THURSTON.  Whew!  ENJOY, and here's to an amazing 2012!

Kegs 'n Eggs (and Beer). Mmmmm..

A beautiful week of weather in Rhode Island as The Happy Hour Guys made a couple of stops in Providence.  First, one of the best St. Patty’s Day celebrations ever: Kegs & Eggs at McCormick & Schmick’s just off Main Square.  Then, Julian’s fine restaurant in the Federal Hill district.

McCormich & Schmick’s was, well, Schmick’sy, but Green Eggs & Ham and a pint of Sam Adams Noble Pils went down very nicely on such a special day.  Add to this banquet the Beer & Collectibles bar Julians, where there we found Oak Aged Yeti on tap and a collectibles of everything from matchbooks on the tables to a series of pez dispensers in the men’s room.

Add to that a cornuopia of Star Wars collectibles, and you have a formidable place indeed.  Enjoy!
