It’s that time of year again. I’m not talking about gypsy moth caterpillars or the mass influx of Manhattanites surging east — I mean Long Island Craft Beer Week. Every spring, restaurants, pubs, breweries and tasting rooms celebrate the incredible boom of locally produced craft beer. (more…)

Standing at the counter of a coffeehouse located inside their Brooklyn brewery, Threes Brewing partners Greg Doroski and Josh Stylman are reminiscing about the early days of their then fledgling company.

DIPA are typically made with even more malt and a lot more hops. They can be sweet, thick, high-alcohol, resinous and impossibly bitter. Usually if I’m having one, it will be after a day of drinking other styles. And I’ll almost always stop at one. These aren’t beers that you drink a four-pack of in a sitting, typically. (more…)
