Hello Whisky and Beer Enthusiasts! We’re a friendly and active group, so please take a moment to tell us a little bit about yourself: how’d you get into whisky, new to NYC, novice or experienced whisky drinker? Feel free to share!

I'd say I was a novice-intermediate whisky drinker just learning a lot in the past 2 years from several guided tasting opportunities offered around NYC.

What are some of your favorite drinks?

Beer: ales in particular, porters and stouts specifically. I also like a well constructed cocktail and I'm a huge fan of many vodkas. Whiskey is a relatively new addition to my drinking menu.

What are some of your favorite places to go out in the city?

I enjoy The Jeffrey A LOT, Blind Tiger when I can actually fit, and St. Andrews for their wide selection and excellent price pint for a dram.

What’s your favorite food/cuisine to eat with beer/whiskey, and/or what is your favorite foodie spot that has great beer/whisky options?

Tough one! (And I wrote this question) I tend to love beef with whisky, although I have done Japanese whiskey with grilled sea food. I'm a big fan of oysters with whiskys, which means Crave Fishbar could be a great choice. Capital Grill on 51st has an outstanding whisk(e) selection but is on the pricey side.

Introduction

I have been drinking and making craft ales since 1994 and I recently developed a real taste for and interest in whiskey (very partial to Blanton's and Belvenie's Double Wood), so this group will be right up my alley!
