Well, it’s done. I’ve moved from Boston, MA to ye olde Brooklyn, NY. It’s been a blast so far, especially the part where my entire apartment was ravaged by a plague and we spent the entire long weekend coughing and sneezing and making soup.
But, y’know, bonding as a group.
But a new city would, hopefully, mean new beers. Sickness has curbed that for the most part, though I did manage to sneak a few in when I was feeling better.
Last night I met a friend at a place called The Brooklyn Stoops, which has a nifty little outdoor area in the back with some steps and fake doors for people to hang out on. I had the Kelso Pilsener, which I found to be quite flavorful and enjoyable.
This afternoon I did some grocery shopping and picked up a six-pack of Brooklyn Oktoberfest. This is a simple, malty October beer. In a strange twist, I kind of preferred Brooklyn’s pumpkin beer. And I rarely prefer a pumpkin beer as a seasonal. I took a picture of it mostly because I wanted to laugh at the fact that I was drinking a beer at 3 in the afternoon:
The picture then landed me this sweet Untappd badge, which gives me an irrational sense of accomplishment:
So that’s it for now. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it together and visit some of Brooklyn’s breweries. I’d love to hit up Sixpoint. Mmmm… Sixpoint.
