Episode 110 (listen here) of Beer Sessions Radio™ brought back regular co-host Dave Brodrick (Blind Tiger) to interview Peekskill’s Jeff O’Neill, who gave the surprise announcement that the brewery is “going from Westchester County’s smallest brewpub to Westchester County’s largest brewpub.” The Peekskill Brewery (about an hour away from NYC on the Metro North Hudson Line) is hoping to be a beer tourism draw with the larger facility slated to open early summer, and we’re looking forward to visiting.
The conversation with Jeff segued nicely into a conversation about coffee in beer and coffee and beer, as in coffee shops that sell beer. Ben Sandler and Jen Lim of The Queens Kickshaw have been selling coffee cold-brew coffee through their keg lines (with a nitrogen push). Their bar (coffee and beer) was designed out of love and largely hand-built by the owners.
Finally, it was time for a phone-in with Bradley Latham discussing the upcoming Craft Brewer’s Conference in San Diego from May 2-5 and what beer industry professionals can expect to gain from attending.
