I was asked by a NYC beer journalist named Josh Bernstein to host the third and final stop on a homebrew tour throughout Brooklyn. Someone found our flip video recorder and documented it for us. With some careful editing, I made it look like everyone enjoyed my beer.
I had two beers on tap, a steam beer “Ky Common” and my “Disaster IPA” aptly named because it was one of my worst brewing days to date. I also poured bottles of a gold medal Irish Red Ale I named the “Shaun Bockert” and my clone of the Longshot Weizenbock. I went through about four gallons of the Ky Common and finished off the final 2.5 gallons of the IPA. I had a part of me that wanted to save at least 24 oz. of the IPA to send away to a homebrew competition coming up but beer is meant for drinking so it got drunk.
(Not documented was when I got the group of about 25 drunk strangers to sing happy birthday to my dog Betelgeuse, who turned two that day and thus ended her puppyhood.)
