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.
Viewed from the upper story of the atrium at Jewel restaurant in Melville on Wednesday night, the launch party for Edible Long Island was was impressive. We built it and you came. Nearly 400 local food supporters were surrounding tables loaded with the samples, snacks and sips provided by local food purveyors.
