DRINK LOCAL!

HUZZAH! Those Summer BBQ’s are gonna have a little more local flavor thanks to the Summer extension of the Broken Stove Beer Tasting Club!

Our brewer has announced a 4 month Summer membership. For just $65 you can get in on the local, homebrew magic. Beer doesn’t get more craft or local than this — unless you do it yourself! Spots are limited so act fast and claim your spot today.

Details – 

Each month, you will receive 3 varieties of beer in your share.  James will be brewing up Pale Ales, a Gosse, an English Brown, 3 different Belgians, and Summer Ales. A booklet will be provided to each member to record tasting notes. For the foodies in the house, we will post a write up about each beer flavor so you can play and pair your monthly beers for an amazing culinary experience.

The Club will have a session once per month from June through September.  (Technically, July will be a double month with 6 varieties arriving with no beer delivery in August)

December Winter Share Distribution

With these whirlwind weeks of holiday cooking and new years celebrations, it seems like it was just yesterday  but it was actually a few weeks ago on December 17th that we had our first distribution of our 5 month Winter season. We figured before we start posting all the amazing things we have been cooking/baking/preserving, it was about time we did an informational post about the December shares….

This month’s distribution included 6 frozen items. Typically we get 5 items plus a fresh bag of pea shoots. Unfortunately, early December was a hard one for pea shoots. The farm that we get our pea shoots from, Little Seed Gardens in Chatham, NY, was hit particularly hard with a cold snap and they lost their pea shoots. (The plan as it stands is to have pea shoots again in January and in subsequent months.) Therefore, in December we all got an extra frozen item in place of the pea shoots.
