Brooklyn Blast Now Available in 12oz Bottles

Oh boy oh boy oh boyohboyohboy….

We remember the first time we here at TapHappyAdventures first tried Brooklyn Blast. It was way back in 2006 at the first ever NY Brewfest on the South Street Seaport. It was mind blowing and delicious then (when I believe it was just a fledgling little youngster trying to claw it’s way into people’s hearts and livers) and it is delicious now. We here are psyched that we can take the Blast home and not have to trek to Brooklyn Bowl or our local watering hole to imbibe! What’re you waiting for?!?! GO GET SOME!

Happy Adventuring!

NYC Beer Week Fundraiser at Brooklyn Brewery


Help support local craft beer in NYC! Tomorrow is your chance to not only help out with NYC Beer Week 2014 but to drink some delicious and (key word) RARE beers such as Brooklyn Brewery’s 2005 Black Chocolate Stout and Late Vintage Bottle Black Ops, KelSo Cabernet Barrel-aged Industrial Pale Ale, Eataly Birreria’s Barista (brewed with Caffe Vergnano Crema 800 Espresso & rolled oats) and the debut of City Island’s Black Ale.

Join all the members of the New York City Brewers Guild (NYCBG) at Brooklyn Brewery tomorrow at 7 pm. Tickets are $40 ($41.99 with the service fee) and include unlimited pours of these rare and exotic beers from 7-10 pm. Tickets are still available as of now but you better hurry!

Click the pic above or right here for more info on the beers being poured and to purchase a ticket to help support NYC Beer Week, happening February 21 – March 2, 2014.

When A Beer Fest is Worth It (Hint, Hint….)



Right on the heels of our last post (kind of) condemning the modern beer fest we have one that seems to be worth it. This one comes in at $39 for general admission and 3 hours of tasting. For a $20 upgrade you can get that extra hour bumping it to 4. The lineup isn’t as strong as some others when it comes to rare finds or exotic beers but it does include a good amount of ciders as well as 12 wineries (12!!!) Plus, a beer fest is a beer fest nonetheless, right?

Reminds me of the good old days (you can’t see it but I’m reminiscing in my rocking chair, the opposite of shaking my fist.) Add in the wineries and ciders and it makes it easier to find a fest companion who may not be as into beer as you or is just looking for a basic intro into the world of craft beer. Finally, location wise, it is right off almost every major subway line around Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn. What’s not to like? Come join TapHappyAdventures (we’ll be there at the Saturday night VIP session) for some beers and good times! 

Want to get in the game? Go check out the beer list at the link above and tell us which ones you’re excited to try. Hit us up on Twitter or Instagram and show us your tastes. We can’t wait to get our tasting glasses filled with Saranac Rudy’s Spiced Christmas Ale and Schlafly Oatmeal Stout. What about you?
