...to come out of New York since...um, well the best thing to come out of New York. Brooklyn Brewery has announced that they will start distributing to Texas, which is their first state west of the Mississippi. I had a chance to try it in Georgia when they were still canning their Brooklyn Lager, pretty similar to Boston Lager.
Garrett Oliver, head brewery of Brooklyn and best dressed man in the business, has come up with some great stuff. My most recent favorite is the wheat wine that they made with German wheat beer brewer Schneider. And, Garrett himself poured it for me at the Great American Beer Festival. He has also written the Brewmaster's Table, pairing food and beer, and on Food Network's Iron Chef as a judge.
