The Women of Craft Beer; Hear Them Roar

In our holiday issue, Sophia del Gigante profiled four women who are making inroads into the once male-dominated world of craft beer. Lauri Spitz of Moustache Brewing Co., Shelby Poole of Morrison’s and Jackson’s gastropubs and Amanda Danielsen and Succety Lara or Hoptron Brewtique are strong and invincible for sure, but they are not alone. Long Island is rapidly becoming a hotbed for fledgling women in the craft beer industry.

Good Beer, Great Adventure

Good Beer is much different than traditional Long Island beer festivals. Instead of a couple guys in shorts and walkie-talkies, you have suited security with earpieces. No tent for Good Beer, we were in a posh New York City venue. The level of detail and production that goes into planning the event made it a truly unique and special occasion.
