VS Mittens from @hoorayhoopla

Written by , Posted in New York


Yesterday at the @ProductNPress event, I met the bubbly Hannah and these fantastic lil gloves. First they were made for adults and now they have them for kids. How fun!

Vs. Mittens – some are predators, some are prey. celebrate the difference with these soft, warm mittens made from strictly regulated farm Australian wool.

wear them outside, play with them inside, make them eat each other. it’s a funner way to grab hold of the world.

mittens are 80/20 blend of wool and acrylic. mittens are of course sweatshop free!

The @VillageVoice @BKPour Craft Beer Festival

Written by , Posted in WorldWide

When I arrived at the historic Skylight One Hanson (formerly the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower) for Village Voice’s first annual Brooklyn Pour craft beer festival, I knew I was in for some serious beer 101.  I dabble in your standard beers, like Corona, Blue Moon and Negra Modelo, but the 100+ beers within the walls of this festival would be new territory.

Now, schooled in the world of craft beer, I don’t know what took me so long to explore all of the variety and creativity that these delicious brews have to offer.

Some of my favorites:

  • Tröegenator Doppelbock by Tröegs Brewing Company: This beer came to my attention when a man behind me who had just tasted his sample screamed out, “yes!”  Never the one to ignore such a strong recommendation, I decided to take whatever he had! Although I didn’t have the impulse to shout, I was not disappointed by this smooth, flavorful beer.
  • Smuttynose Robust Porter by Smuttynose Brewing Company: This was the “comfort food” of beers, with a light, smooth, dark chocolate taste.  A great beer for fall.
  • Torpedo Extra IPA by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company: I discovered that I have a thing for IPAs (Indian pale ale).  I enjoy their richness and complexity. This one is a perfect “everyday” beer (I’m not necessarily saying you should drink it everyday!).  Something you might crack open after a long day at work to enjoy its balanced, smooth taste.
  • Ithaca Apricot Wheat by Ithaca Beer Company: Wonderful natural apricot flavor without being overpowering.
  • Raging Bitch Belgian Style IPA by Flying Dog Brewery:   I don’t usually care for bitter beers, but the sweetness of this brew paired perfectly with the slightly bitter finish.
Cute, little tasting glass–now a souvenir of my beer tasting adventures
Gorgeous venue!
Personally, I hate pretzels, but they make a good palate cleanser for beer tasting–and cool necklaces.
I tasted home-brewed beer that was pretty good!
