On Sunday, May 4, 2014 I headed downtown to 508 Gastrobrewery, one of New York City’s few brew pubs for a homebrew bottle share with special guest John Palmer, author of the well known How To Brew book and the recently released Water book. After sampling some of 508’s beers (brewed by brewmaster Chris Cuzme), sharing some homebrews, and a quick tour of 508’s basement brewing set up; John and I went back down to the basement to film an interview about his influence on the homebrewing and craft beer community. It was an honor to finally meet him, have him try one of my beers (Woman of Valor Tripel), chat with him about both his homebrewing experiences over the years and how I can improve my personal homebrewing skills and process.
I’d like to thank the follow two people. Chris Cuzme for organizing such an amazing event. It was a learning experience that I’ll never forget. John LaPolla of Bitter and Esters for organizing John Palmer’s special weekend in NYC and in effect creating the opportunity for me to meet one of my homebrewing role models. You both are amazing friends and I look forward to sharing many more homebrewing and craft beer experiences with you. Cheers!
