On today’s show… I’m joined by my co-host Rich Thatcher.  We’ll be taking you to Spuyten Duyvil, a cool beer bar in Brooklyn.  Our featured beer of the day is Southampton’s Bière de Garde.

I was hoping to get some coverage of last night beer dinner out at Southampton Publick House, but I didn’t get back from the dinner until after midnight.  Needless to say I had a good time.  I’ll tell you all about it soon.

Southampton is putting on their beer dinner again, but this time in Huntington at Canterbury Ales.  This event will be on the 21st and you can find the details on the Long Island Beer Calendar or on my blog.

If you really like beer dinners, mark this event on your calendar:

May 23rd: Beer and Food Tasting

WHERE: Deks American Restaurant in Rocky Point
WHEN: Wednesday, May 23, 2007 at 7 pm
WHAT: Hand Crafted Beer with Hand Crafted Food
RSVP: 631-821-0066 or deksrockypoint at optonline dot net

Taste a line-up of 5 beers paired with 5 appetizers.  Price per person is $30.  I’ll be on hand to talk about the beers.  The chefs at Deks are putting together a special menu.  I’ll let you know what the menu is when I find out.

We finish up the show with a beer blend, a high gravity "three threads" using all Weyerbacher ales.

Coming soon to the show: The Session #4 on June 1st will be a "Local Brews Event" hosted by Gastronomic Fight Club.  We’ll be participating by picking a local brewpub and doing a whole show devoted to their beer.  Leave a comment and let me know which of Long Island’s breweries you like best.  Maybe I’ll make the featured brewer "the people’s choice."

Next week… We’ll take you  to Barcade where we drink beer and play Asteroids.
