Stone Oakquinox 2012

Big beer is often portrayed as a simple way to socialize. But there is nothing ordinary about the amazing beers that are poured at Stone Brewing’s Oakquinox. This age-old tradition of barrel aging beers has returned with a flavor busting vengeance, in festival form.

Murray's Saloon & Eatery


Located in the village, just a few miles from Bear Mountain, Murray's Saloon & Eatery has a mountain divey-ness vibe that is unparelled. Nightly karaoke, a great menu of burgers & appetizers, billiards and a full bar make Murray's a local's favorite. Upon entering the bar, you will likely get the locals once over, reminiscent of a western saloon. But after a few drinks, you'll find one of the most eclectic groups of people - locals and tourists alike - partying together in one small dive bar.

Before brewing was all the rage, Teri was a grain handling, wort boiling, carboy carrying, yeast pitching, beer fermenting, woman, in a male-dominated industry.

Homebrewer Highlight: Ross Steinberg

Ross Steinberg is the focus of my first homebrewer highlight. Having lived in Los Angeles, it may come as no surprise that he now brews beer for bands such as Prong, Ministry and The Swingin' Utters. Cool.

I just caught wind of a coup.  It's nothing that will make the headlines, except for the occasional drinking or beard-celebrating blogs.  But Steve McKenna, co-host (stunt-drinker, mascot, drinking buddy) of "Drinking Made Easy" on HDNet, formerly of "Three Sheets" on Spike, will be hanging up his mug.  Permanently.
