The Showdown – Fred Dexheimer vs Garrett Oliver

Friday, March 26th, 2010

I love beer, but some of you may not know I also really love wine.  I write and talk a lot about beer, but I’m also a huge fan of wine, scotch, whiskey, bourbon and tequila.  So let me share with you a photo essay of this epic Beer versus Wine dinner, sponsored by Amanti Vino, which featured Master Sommelier, Fred Dexheimer squaring off against Brewmaster Garrett Oliver.  These two men are very charismatic and appeared to have lots of fun taking little shots and jabs at each other throughout the night.  In my humble opinion and I’m sure that of Garrett Oliver, Beer triumphed once again versus Wine.  Although, I will concede the wine did win at least one of the cheeses.  The best part of it, the wines were just as spectacular as the beer.  If I had the money, I would buy all the wines featured in the dinner, But the breadth of flavors in the beer made Fred’s challenge a difficult one.BeerVWine1

Photo Tour of Brooklyn Brewery

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

One of my beer highlights this year was tour of Brooklyn Brewery Garrett Oliver gave Simply Beer in early Dec. We met Garrett around 11 am on a cold New York morning in Williamsburg Brooklyn. After a quick warmup in the offices, he took us on a complete tour of the brewery that lasted over an hour and half. As we entered the main brewery the clanking of bottles echoed throughout the building as we watched 750ml bottles of Black Ops taking their trips trough the bottling line.brooklynbrewery_tour16
