What’s more fun than drinking local beer? Traveling to drink beer locally! The Great American Ale Trail author Christian DeBenedetti joined Jimmy Carbone and Blind Tiger’s Dave Brodrick this week on Beer Sessions Radio™ to talk about a career of travel-based beer writings, including his favorites from around the country. This segued nicely into a discussion of the Portland (OR) homebrew beer scene as compared with what is happening across Brooklyn these days. That led to tasting some homebrew courtesy of Danielle Cefaro and Benjamin Stutz of Brooklyn Homebrew. Their homebrew competition, The Brooklyn Wort, takes place on April 28th.

Finally, if you’re trying to decide between a great craft beer to go or dropping by the flower shop to pick up something for your special someone (or just to beautify the apartment), worry no more! At Sycamore Flower Shop and Bar, you can do both. Meet Justin Israelson, who talks about his unique shop in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. You can listen to the full episode here.
