Brew York, Brew York, what a wonderful town.
Over the water to the forgotten borough.
Girl, I wanna take you to a cheese bar.
It’s only rock ‘n’ roll but I like it.
A beer person does New York. “New York is weird for the first-time visitor. Because it’s so familiar from films and TV shows, it feels quite surreal to actually be there. I keep expecting to look out of the window and see Spider-Man fighting Dr Octopus on the flat roof of one of these Manhattan office blocks.” [Via I might have a glass of beer]

Ancient Beer Recipes Lead to Modern Health Remedies.
Just so you know, “Brewing Local” will not be full of ancient beer recipes — but I have a rooting interest in the topic because non-traditional ingredients may provide health benefits.

How Beer CSAs Are Changing the Way America Drinks.
There’s also Sketchbook in Evanston, Illinois, headquarters of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union. [Via Eater]
How big brewers destroyed pub culture.
“The curious thing is that the big brewery companies seem unable to realise the effect of their own actions and policies, of devouring one another until only a handful are left, of restricting drink manufacturers without tied estates access to sell their products, of creating strife among their own tenants, of closing local breweries and limiting choice.” [Via Shut Up About Barclay Perkins]
