As I was sitting at the brewery talking with one of the ladies that works there, we were discussing the “Pink Boots Society” and women’s brew day. I mentioned I had gone once and felt out of place, it was nothing anyone did, everyone was very welcoming, even when I told them, “I’m not in the industry, I’m just a fan. Well I have a beer blog …”
A rather sorry excuse of a beer blog.
Today I decided I should start it up again so I logged in only to find 11 draft posts. 11 posts where I went to a brewery and started posting and never finished. In the case of this post, all I posted were photos. No text, no notes about what happened or what I thought of the brewery. Sigh.
Being a bit of a coward, I don’t want to look at the other drafts and will just jump in on what I remember from this day. The reason there are pictures of more than just the brewery are because I was in DUMBO for a photography meet-up. When I heard it was in DUMBO I thought to myself, “SWEET! After the meet-up I can check out Randolph Beer. That was the plan. But first …. photos. The organizer of the meet-up was very knowledgeable about NYC and DUMBO and beside photo tips shared some trivia about NYC and Brooklyn with us. It was a fun time.
I had to include this picture because my girlfriend used to live in Brooklyn and had told me tales about the St George. When I sent her a picture of it, she asked me “Where is the homeless guy that used to live there?” I told her he had been gentrified.
Plymouth Church – part of the Underground Railroad, SO kind of a famous church. These round spots are where the chute for the coal bin was. The delivery person would just load up the bin. Kind of how petroleum heating tanks have valves now.
Obligatory DUMBO selfie, pretty sure this was before visiting the brewery.
And then on to the brewery. Since I didn’t write anything down, this may not be accurate, but see the shiny tanks! Also food, guest taps and pinball machines. 27 July 2019
