This past Tuesday night, the Bronx blogging community and photographers descended upon the Gun Hill Brewing Company on Laconia Avenue for Brewers and Bloggers Networking event bringing many talented voices together.
The crew attending the event was as diverse as our beautiful home borough of the Bronx is and provided for an exciting evening filled with laughter, reunions and folks finally meeting in real-time after knowing each other for so long in the online world.
Such events like Brewers and Bloggers serve to solidify these relationships we often form online without ever meeting in person. There is something to be said about meeting the “man behind the curtain.”
A big shout out goes to the folks at the Gun Hill Brewing Company for hosting us in their new space before their official opening (which BTW is this Saturday, March 22nd).
I’m not a beer drinker but I do occasionally enjoy a few here and there. It’s never been my thing but I must say that the 3 varieties which I tasted had me SOLD! I tried the Gold, the IPA, and the Stout. The latter was very delicious with a slight chocolaty taste.
The event also couldn’t have been possible without our sponsors Pretzel Crisps, and of course our very own Tosca Cafe of Throgs Neck, home of one of the best brunches in the Bronx! Oh and a special thank you goes to Sal Conforto Founder and Publisher of The Bronx Chronicle for providing the wonderful Gun Hill Brewing Company merchandise for the raffle!
If you didn’t make it to this one, fret not for we shall continue these events in the very near future.
