Love the video!
Lennart (1 year ago)
Oh and one more question: I didn't quite get what they mixed the Mein Aventinus with because of the noisy surroundings. Barrel-aged Eisbock?
+Lennart it was...trying to remember which barrel! I believe it was a red wine one.
Lennart (1 year ago)
Ah dammit! Why did it take me so much time to discover you guys? I just love your videos and your passion for beer. Now all the binge watching really interferes with my bachelor thesis. Worth it though! But one question: How do you keep track of all the new breweries, all the different bars and places you want to go? I discovered the wishlist on untappd, but that gets also quite messy the more I discover.
+Lennart haha - well we find the best way to keep the list under control is to get them ticked off by going! I (jonny) keep a scrapbook too but like yours it's very messy.

great video - happy to see Good Beer and ABC getting some love. only criticism is there's a borough of 2 million residents and a dozen breweries that wasn't mentioned once. pay her a visit next time.
J.A. Strub sounds good!
J.A. Strub (1 year ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel well the next time you're around, hit me up and I'll show ya around Queens!
+J.A. Strub hey man. Only so many parts of NYC we can do in one vid but we'll be back to visit the rest. Had to do the same with our San Fran vid!

you missed out on Beer Culture and Beer Authority.
Saurabh Mane (1 year ago)
The Craft Beer Channel Beer Culture: 45th & 8th.
We did indeed miss Beer Culture, where is that? We went Beer Authority but found it a bit soulless compared to the others.

Peculiar Pub on Bleecker St. - extensive bottle/can list from all over the world.
Peter Wheeler (1 year ago)
Loving your channel. Should come down under to Melbourne and try some of our beers!
we would love to! Keep getting half baked plans to come over but budgets are....restrictive!
Finlay Cox (2 years ago)
Damn! I got really excited about all these places as I'll be in NYC in a few months, and then remembered I can't drink over there... (21, really?)
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
You can own a gun, drive a car and vote. But you can't have a beer.

come check out American Beauty bar in midtown manhattan there are 12 different craft beers on tap
VladdyVille (2 years ago)
its my favorite bar you'll like it you get a free personal pizza pie with every drink.....and they have everything from Grimm beer to Abita
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
We didn't know about that one. Next time.

we film on a Canon 600d and do sound with a rode shotgun. need lapels badly so saving up!
cns180784 (2 years ago)
Whats the typical price for a beer at a bar there? and do they come all in pints?
cns180784 (2 years ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel Fair play although i'm used to cheap prices, to me London is ridiculously expensive- have only been there twice in my life...i live near Birmingham.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+cns180784 it's pricey but cheaper than London and not so dependent on abv - we drank beers of up to 10% and prices remained the same. It's all about value rather than price! As for clubs though I don't know pricing as we're more pub lovers!
cns180784 (2 years ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel Thats well expensive, so looking at cheapest pint costs about £4.80. Good video, but for me the price for beer there alone puts me off going. If i went to New York it would be for a week at least and i'd be having at least a few beers every night along with the sight seeing in the day. Beer prices are important for me though as most nights me and my mate(s) would be clubbing.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+cns180784 it was about $7 or $8 for 500 ml

Whiskey River (2 years ago)
Currently I live about 8 miles west of Manhattan. I can't stand the place; unless I've a mind to visit the myriad brewpubs for some of the same lovely beers you talk about. I always go during the week, and always between 11 AM and 4 PM. It's the only time you can have a nice, quiet, fun-filled conversation with the eclectic local personalities; without wearing earplugs, and without having to drive a bulldozer to the bar, and then wait another twenty minutes to get your glass filled. Earlybirds enjoy the best that these places have to offer. I'm glad you had a chance to visit; it certainly is a mindblower; both culturally, and brewer-er-ly........... LOL!!!!!!! ;)
Whiskey River (2 years ago)
Trying to see the trip through your eyes, I would have to agree. As a retired "Young, Wild, and Crazy" world traveler, I wouldn't have had it any other way. But I had it easy, because I wasn't worried about filming anything; which is a dynamics most viewers don't think about. With that said, thanks for what you do; it's quite enjoyable to watch, and I love most of the beers, and the people and places you cover. Cheers brother!!!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+Whiskey River (Doc) I was pretty glad I was drinking during the day mostly so I could film! Still, some of the bars had a great buzz in the evening even if getting to the bar was a challenge.

I can tell that you had a serious hang over after all of that. Just go into a dark room that has no noise. and sleep. that's what helps me. although I know when to get myself drunk off my ass. (and no I'm not 21) 😜

Solid list, nice video! Did you visit One Mile House? If not, you should next time. Great selection and superfriendly staff.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+Oljud damn, missed that place.
deathmitt3ns1 (2 years ago)
Definitely should have stopped by Taproom No. 307 on 23rd and 3rd. They have 40 beers on tap and the beer list is always changing. Their bottle list is also quite impressive with many beers from around the world. Not to mention their food is amazing
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+deathmitt3ns1 holy crap! Never even heard of that one! Sounds amazing.
mrguystarr (2 years ago)
Cheers mate... I live in NYC (Brooklyn native) and I can attest to the craft beer shops/pubs featured here. I visit them as well. All good, really, something for everyone at all levels of beer nerdiness.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+mrguystarr awesome, glad a local approves!
Nicholas Bouffard (2 years ago)
Please tell me you went up to treehouse and vermont whilst you were in the northeast!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+Nicholas Bouffard Sadly not - always so pressed for time! Hoping to be back soon and will explore a bit further.
Race Frazier (2 years ago)
Come to Seattle! I am all about local. I would say about 80% of the beer I buy is from Washington. There are loads of breweries in a 30 miles of Seattle. Many of witch don't bottle. Also fantastic pubs and bars as well. I haven't even come close to trying them all. Fav. Gose is a blueberry Gose by Skookum.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+Race Frazier we wanna come so bad! Hoping to make it to the West Coast next year.
Alex Barandiaran (2 years ago)
Love your vids guys, you should come to the Basque Country (Spain), great craft beers raising up lately. Cheers!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+Alex Barandiaran has it? Who should we look out for and try to track down?
snaffen (2 years ago)
Awesome episode! Only have to find an excuse to go across the pond now. Heads up on the last place. The placename "Tørst" means thirsty in Danish and Norwegian. (the ø is pronounced like "u" in "burst")
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+snaffen thanks for clearing that up!
Dingo Supreme (2 years ago)
Jonny, when will you do an episode on Dutch (craft) beers? Seeing as you're quite the fan of Belgian ones, I'm sure you'll love the Dutch ones just as much!
Dingo Supreme (2 years ago)
+Dingo Dingo And Maybe the Weizener by Hertog Jan. Hertog Jan is me and my mates' favourite "normal" beer brand! haha
Dingo Supreme (2 years ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel I see, looking forward to it then!! Don't forget La Trappe, the very first Dutch trappist beer, by De Koningshoeven. And a very well loved beer at that!! Cheers for answering my question!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
We really want to come over and see some breweries but haven't found a time yet. We love jopen and obviously de molen though! And kampaan are good too.

tom priestley (2 years ago)
Went last year. The beer is at a whole new level over there. Torst and Good Beer were fantastic!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Yeah it's the general quality of the beer...it's everywhere you go!
Matt Laube (2 years ago)
Try pipeworks! Just recently made it out there. Amazing stuff. Might be the best thing to come out of Chicago.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+Matthew Laube never heard of them but we have a friend in Chicago...I might ask him to ship some.
Gonna check on those bars next time in nyc
Whiskey River (2 years ago)
Alex, there's a fresh oyster bar just across the street from the Blind Tiger. When in season, they have it all; mussels, clams, oysters, etc. You could do an ale/shellfish pairing! Find the best ale to pair with the awesome Moules Marinière you made on FoodTube. ;)
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+Alex French Guy Cooking you better! The wine was waaaay overpriced.

I was in NYC last Christmas and I visited 5 of the places in your video. Good to know my craft beer nose works well. I've still got a bottle of Dogfish 120 IPA sitting in my basement from the trip and I might have to crack it open.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Lucky you! Don't let it sit too long or the hops will fade!

Tell me you stayed for the release of this years Goose Island Bourbon County Stout! They release every black Friday. Also did you try any of Founders beers? They are great beers.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Sadly not - and I missed the official press launch too. Chose the worst week. But drank some founders - we get lots in the UK though.

That's good to see Hill Farmstead. I thought it was only available in Vermont? Was it draft only?

When I went to NY on my honeymoon earlier in the year I went to so many places but Rattle and Hum, Mugs, Barcade (the one on Union Street) and especially Torst were among my favourites! Great minds and all that.

+Jake O great drunken minds.
Oh man we love NYC. NEed to go back again, thanks for these tips today. Very handy for when we next visit :)

I have two questions: 1. Do you get paid to do this? If so, you have one of the best jobs in the world! 2. Why don't we see more of Brad? Thanks for the amazing videos!
#GOALDIGGER (3 months ago)
when you're in frankfurt, I'll film you :P
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+Tasting Nitch we don't, but we'd all pay for more Brad! We're looking at monetising beyond freelance and Youtube ads but being a hobby it's tough finding time...
Tasting Nitch (2 years ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel Do you have a Patreon or anything? Cuz, I'd pay for more Brad.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Hey! We get paid a bit but we're working on sponsors and such! As for the Brad, we both wish he could be in it more! Sadly someone has to be behind the camera. He's in the next few though...
Harry Doyle (2 years ago)
One of my favourite bars in New York is McSorleys on east 7th street. They serve 2 beers: Light and Dark. The atmosphere was amazing the few times I was there, and it's just such a different drinking experience.
Harry Doyle (2 years ago)
They do brew their own beers, although not on site (i think). Its one of New Yorks oldest bars if not the oldest. The floor is covered in sawdust and when its busy (which is often) the staff tend to shove people wherever they can fit leading to some very interesting conversations with strangers. :) Its not necessarily a great place for beer, but it is definitely one of the best bars I've been to. :)
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
we missed out! is it a brewpub?
