I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

Bronx Brewery is doing so many great things and have now been more ubiquitous around town. Their take on a double IPA is no joke – hitting on all cylinders with a number of different hop varietals playing together for different levels of hoppiness – grassy, fruity, piney, citrusy. It’s a well-rounded and uttely drinkable play on a new American style.

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NYC Brewery Tour explores the growing craft brewery scene in the city and visits all the unlikely spots that are brewing fresh, delicious beer.

I’ve been a fan of Bronx Brewery’s beers since I first tasted their pale ale in 2011. Now they have all grown-up and have a fully functioning brewery in the South Bronx which is open every single day to the public. Great beer, games, and a view of the brewhouse await you.

My search for the best beer in New York continues….

Bronx Brewery is not a brand new brewery. Their beers have been circulating around the city for a few years now. But I think most people would be surprised to learn that it is only recently that they have been making beer in the Bronx. (more…)

My search for the best pickles in New York continues….

JACOB'S PICKLES, 509 Amsterdam Avenue (between West 84th and West 85th Street), Upper West Side

I recently met up with an old friend from college and I thought he was going to laugh at me when I said we should meet at a bar that specializes in beer and pickles. Surprisingly, he said, “That place is around the corner from my apartment, I’m there all the time!”

Hanging with Some Pickles

Jacob’s Pickles is on the Upper West Side which is a true representation of old and new New York. There are definitely still some Jewish residents here and there a handful of hipsters moving in as well. So it makes sense that a neighborhood bar in this area would specialize in pickles.  (more…)

For the fourth year in a row, I present the 100 most exciting dishes I’ve consumed during my food adventures around the five boroughs. Look for another five dishes every few days.

The beer possibilities in this country continue to  expand. Not only are there literally new breweries and nanobreweries opening every month, but the flavors and styles that are possible keep evolving. I even read about a white stout from some craft brewer in Wisconsin. Not sure how that would work, but if it tastes good like these five NYC brews did, I’m all for it.

NUMBER 90: SCORCHER #366 from BROOKLYN BREWERY

Scorcher #366 from BROOKLYN BREWERY at ROSAMUNDE SAUSAGE GRILL

One of the popular new styles in the beer world are low alcohol IPAs – hop bombs that you could drink all day long without falling on your face (at least for a while), Brooklyn Brewery’s entry into that world was through one of their special Brewmaster’s Reserve beers. The Scorcher #366 (which might be tough to find at this point, as it was a limited release) was one of the first beers in the world to use a brand new hybrid hop from Washington state – the aptly named HBC 366. It gives the beer a surprising peppery flavor that might be rough for some, but is full of minerally, citrus flavors and has spice notes that I’ve not stopped craving since my first sip.

My search for the best beer in New York continues….

Of all the new NYC-based breweries popping up, I think Bronx Brewery has been the smartest. They didn’t roll out a dozen different beer styles from the get go, but instead focused on one quality beer and perfected it. Everybody in the beer world had tasted Bronx’s Pale Ale and it’s been generally well received.

Once they perfected the flagship beer, the guys in the northernmost borough (although the beer is currently brewed in Connecticut) have gotten creative. They’ve taken that winning pale ale recipe and put little twists on it. We’ve seen their Rye Pale Ale, the Bourbon Barrel Aged Pale Ale, the Zinfandel Aged Pale Ale, and now their newest spin is the Black Pale Ale.
