Other Half Brewing challenges breweries to get 'All Together'

Other Half Brewing challenges breweries to get 'All Together'

Other Half Brewing launches an initiative to benefit service workers whose jobs have been sidelined by the coronavirus pandemic.

A sobering reality

This column is another reminder, and a sobering warning: not all small businesses will survive this. Many will permanently shutter their doors as a result of this stagnation, including local breweries. But patrons can still help support them.

Fizzy lifting drinks

Beer may not be on the top of our shopping lists as we prepare to practice social distancing and brace for a seemingly inevitable quarantine. But local breweries are going to be hit hard by the state-mandated closures, so consider adding a four-pack or two to your cart.

Fresh takes on a mainstay

For the easily-bored crowd of craft beer devotees, Rochester’s thriving beer scene promises your glass will always be filled with something fresh and new. Join writer Gino Fanelli and other beer aficionados as they discuss “What’s new in IPAs” on Wednesday, March 11, at Sager Beer Works.

Love at first sight

When Gino heard about the coffee-kombucha collaboration, he envisioned acidic and tart flavors clashing with dark-roasted notes into a muddled, nauseating mess. But Imbue, a new collaboration between Katboocha and Joe Bean Coffee, is anything but that.

A hidden gem

For those not in-the-know, one of the best bottle shops in Monroe County, One Stop Brew Shop, is tucked away in Erie Canal Commons on Ridgeway Avenue in Greece, sandwiched between a liquor store and a jeweler.

Barrels of fun

Bourbon-barrel Blueberry Pancake Ale is a shudder-worthy phrase. But this 9.8 percent brew, released for the New York Beer Project’s first anniversary in Victor, provided a quick kick of humility.

Brunch brew

Last week Nate Kester released his second sour out of Irondequoit Beer Company's five-barrel brew house. Dubbed Permanent Waves, it's a modest 4.5 percent sour brew flanked by 125 pounds of blood orange and 150 pounds of mango puree.

Unsung subtleties

Ah, the humble, unheralded brown ale -- a beer style that is as decidedly unsexy as it is inoffensive. But on Saturday, February 1, Sager Beer Works and Manchester's Reinvention Brewing Company unveiled a very special brown ale, one of 20 special collaborations released exclusively for The Beer Market.
