What You Missed On Beer Sessions Radio™ – The NYC Brewers Guild (5/8/12)

This week’s episode of Beer Sessions Radio™ (listen here) brought together several big names in the local brew scene. Representing three different Boroughs were The Bronx Brewery (Damien Brown and Chris Gallant); SingleCut Beersmiths, Queens’ first brewery (represented by Rich Bucheta); and Brooklyn Brewery‘s Maia Raposo. The rise of so many craft brewers in the city has led to many of these brewers forming a non-profit (pending) coalition: The New York City Brewers Guild. As secretary of NYCBG, Maia is trying to build awareness of the group, whose mission statement is “to advocate for and promote awareness of its local brewing members; to increase the visibility of local beers through programming, events, and consumer education; and to foster a healthy, ethical, and growth-focused craft beer industry throughout the city.”

Also on the show were regular contributors Dave Broderick and Jen Schwertman from Blind Tiger, who talked about their recent trip to San Diego’s Craft Brewers Conference. Get the inside scoop from the insiders… all while trying some cool new beers!
