New York Breweries update nudges closer

I went to TAPNY over the weekend, had a LOT of great beers from some excellent new New York breweries (the top two awards went to breweries under a year old, Crossroads and Barrier (and well-deserved), and I enjoyed the hell out of the beers from Greenport, too), and saw a phenomenal level of support for the state's brewers. So I'm in final negotiations on a long-overdue update of New York Breweries. There are over 60 breweries in the state now, with the Finger Lakes region and Long Island leading the growth, and again, some truly excellent beers being made. Going to be a lot of travel, a lot of work, but I think this is going to happen.

Great! I have not read the original- did you happen to cover the big Olde Saratoga/Mendocino/Kingfisher brewery in Saratoga Springs?

I did include them, and a new edition would certainly include them again.

Did you meet Chad from Chadz Beer Reviews? He is an expert on beer. Jay from Jay's beer reviews as well. I'm surprised these guys were not the judges. They both have Youtube Channels and are beer experts. You know these guys? They are beer writers like you.

As a former Philadelphian and a current New Yorker, I would love to see this happen! Keep up the good work!
