Beer Review 101: Empire Strong Ale


Hello Beer Friends Nation! Over the hump... 101.  Feels good.  Idle Hands in Alphabet City NYC does some great events - one happened a few weeks ago was one to remember.  Empire Brewing came in and swept 3/4 Beer Friends away (1/4 of the Beer Friends couldn't make it - otherwise they would've been batting a thousand).  Two staples you can find of Empire Brewing are their Cream Ale and the IPA, but we became resourceful and got our hands on a growler of Strong Ale.  The beer is delicious, the events are great and we'll buy you a pint if you spot us there!  Beer Events!  101! Drink Local!
