New York City
« on: September 18, 2012, 04:29:41 PM »
Didn't see a thread for NYC, so I thought I'd start one.   My neighbors run a marketing research firm and are looking for some New Yorkers to help them out.   It's a win win.  You get paid $500 and you get to drink beer!

Jeff,

We're kicking off phase 4 of our beer project here at work, and Shelley (our researcher) is asking me to ask you if you have any connections/friends in NY that are 'exactly like Jeff'.

The research program is outlined below. Feel free to forward to anyone you might think is a good fit.

Much appreciated,
Robert

Hello!

gravitytank is innovating in the brewing space, and needs a handful of beer-loving New Yorkers to help beta-test what we've got. It's a confidential study, and invite only. But here's the rub: we're NOT looking to talk to home-brewers for our research. We're looking to talk to people who love (!) beer, and also have a bit of a DIY/maker/creativity streak.

You'd likely do it for the love of craft, the love of craft beer, or both - but we are paying $500+ for participation.

You're a great fit if you…

// Genuinely LOVE beer. Not a home brewer, but someone who knows his/her way around a beer menu, and is perhaps curious about the brewing process.

// Like to make stuff. Chefs, cooks, hackers, quilters, construction workers, designers, picklers, furniture makers, you name it. If you are tasked professionally, or have a passion that lets you figure out how things are made or have a penchant for making stuff, we're interested. 

// Have an iPhone or Android smartphone. Because this is primarily an app-based study, we're looking for smartphone users only (with a few exceptions for those who have an iPod Touch with a camera  or iPad 2+)

// Can commit to the whole study. We'll need you to show up to a small kick-off event in mid Oct, and an exit interview in mid Nov. The core of the research however, is to have you take home a prototype we've built, and live with it for 5 weeks. You'll document your usage using an app on your phone, called dScout. It shouldn't take you more than 20-30 mins per week to fulfill what we're looking for in your documentation.

// Are cool with researchers coming to your home. Some of you may be invited for a bonus interview, conducted at your place. Participating in an additional interview = additional $$.  So everybody gets $500 - some people will earn a bit more.

 

If you're interested, we'd love to talk to you. Here's where we go from here:

1) Take the quick survey through this link - we'd like to ask a few pre-lim questions's about you, beer, and your availability:

https://gtrecruiting.wufoo.com/forms/beer-pilot/

2) If you qualify, we'll call you to follow up & have a chat about participation and to learn a little bit more about you.

Thank you + Cheers!
i'm not good at putting this stuff in words but i can't see myself with anyone else except maybe urbanhack.

You should send a message to afksports on here.  Assuming he has his email setup to notify him since he doesn't seem to log on here much anymore.  You could also hit him up at BA.  Good guy that I am sure would be into this.  Probably could get his fiance to go with too.

that is why when i go to NYC i grab some bottles and drink in the parks. looking at the current taplist there really isn't anything on there worth blowing my load over anyways, but i'm also not a euro beer hipster.

Spending this weekend in NYC with a buddy that flew in from Houston.  Blind Tiger is definitely on the list and plan on checking out a few other spots on the beerfly NYC guide and whatever is close to where we're staying in brooklyn.

Cleveland @ NYY tomorrow

If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.  Thanks!

Spuyten Duyvil is on the radar. as is Sixpoint and Brooklyn (since we'll be so close).

we'll see what my buddy is up for.


(odds are we end up at some shitty hipster bar looking at dudes wearing scarves and winter hats in 96 degree weather)

:lol: if only i could remember most of it

we were all over lower Manhattan on Friday. then Brooklyn and mid-town Manhattan on Saturday. saw the new Whitney museum and walked the Highline (totally fucking awesome, btw)

it was so damned hot that we would walk a bit, pop in to a bar, have a few :unsure: then walk to the next place. wash, rinse, repeat. after we got back to Brooklyn on saturday night for the party we picked up a friend at the party, walked to the corner bodega but stopped on the way for a shot and a couple beers :unsure:  grabbed a 6 pack and a 40  that we mostly drank on the 3 block walk back  :unsure: and then partied until about 2 AM

had to get up at 5:30 for my flight

was still borderline drunk when we landed in Milwaukee

Highline Park is a park/path on an old elevated train line that originates in the Meat Packing district and ends over by the Javits Center. 

beer highlights?  Coffee Dinosmores was pretty great. Lilliko'i Kepolo on draft was tits.

personal highlights, just seeing a couple old friends and getting weird all weekend.  :unsure:

Yeah, I think it got dumbed down in recent years. Was ok last time I had it, but missing something it had before.

 :trainwreck:

Unrelated, but I feel happy to have been a beer geek so young and early to enjoy it before it got so crazy. because now it has just jumped the shark so much. There is a new brewery here making all kettle soured beers and they are crap. It's a damned shame I can't get stuff like Cantillon an 3 Fonteinen here but I'd rather not drink sour beer than drink the crap that most American brewers are making. Jester King is awesome but I usually don't want to drive 45 minutes from home to wait in line and pay $20 for a 500ml bottle and I certainly don't have the patience to try and trade or hunt down any shit nowadays.

A lot of american sour beers do suck but they don't all suck. Kettle sours = 90% suck.

So many kettle sours are like Bose Acoustimass subwoofers - you know, those shoebox sized things with a hole in the front?  One note pony.  No depth at all.  I have had a few good ones, but they seem to require either a deft hand with hop and or fruit additions or aging in oak (new or used).
My friends say I'm like doing the laundry and forgetting the bleach: I'm not as bright as I could be.

And the subwoofer is the better of the parts of those Bose systems...

Furley, check out Spuyten Duyvil and Fette Sau. :ninja:

Spuyten Duyvil is on the radar. as is Sixpoint and Brooklyn (since we'll be so close).

we'll see what my buddy is up for.


(odds are we end up at some shitty hipster bar looking at dudes wearing scarves and winter hats in 96 degree weather)

sadly sixpoint doesn't have a place for people to visit right now.. HOWEVER they are opening something soon. it will be a damn miracle.

Got the itch, going in Jan. to see a couple shows.
Only have a weekend, and mainly we'll be in Midtown/Chelsea. Any ideas?

Looking at As Is, Blind Tiger, and maybe a return to Spuyten Duyvil if there's time.

edit: looking at places like Lupulo's list, I hope pricing like that isn't standard. Yeesh. :$:

not too promising :( but, downtown Manhattan and all, gotta make the rent...

I read about some place that had Other Half cans for $7 and that sounded affordable.
$5/5oz. for a pilsner like the list above, not so much. Blind Tiger serves a lot of $7 pints it looks like.

was in NYC last summer and those prices look about right. Blind Tiger had reasonable'ish rates on the "lower end" stuff. but i'd say go in expecting to pay $10 per at a bar.

That makes sense, premium stuff costs more here too. I'm mostly looking for local/regional stuff we don't get here like OEC, Suarez Family, Other Half, Peeskill, Jack's Abby, etc.

Springdale may be around - it's Jack's Abby sister brewery next door, making ales.

Jeff O'Neill's place.  He's the one that put Ithaca and then Peekskill on the map.

I haven't hear of any, but I don't really know.  I guess I could send him a message and ask...

Cool, sure if you want to. I looked them up and saw a Brett pale called Jigsaw, but that was it.

Looks like a really good Neapolitan 'za place around the corner from Blind Tiger, called Kesté.

I had no idea that's his place....their beers are really good, we are starting to see them in Buffalo often.

Only have a weekend, and mainly we'll be in Midtown/Chelsea. Any ideas?

Looking at As Is, Blind Tiger, and maybe a return to Spuyten Duyvil if there's time.

edit: looking at places like Lupulo's list, I hope pricing like that isn't standard. Yeesh. :$:
I went to Proletariat for the first time a few weeks ago.  Definitely a bit of a snobby feel to it but the beer list was phenomenal.  All sorts of stuff I haven't heard of, cask this, barrel-aged that, DDH whatever, foreign stuff, American stuff.  Really top notch.  Wasn't cheap but I don't remember leaving thinking it was outrageously overpriced compared to what I'm used to paying.  Worth stopping in for sure if you're in the area.

Thanks! Looks like a cool place. On the same block that Belgian Room/Hop Devil Grill used to be, and only a few blocks from d.b.a.

Here's my tentative list of beer stuff:
Milk & Hops or Haymaker
Upright Ale House
Blind Tiger
St. Anselm, Spuyten Duyvil, Fette Sau
Maybe Tørst

Avoiding Sat. night at bars, going at off hours mostly.
This bar Cardiff Giant has a nice list of all NY stuff.

Oh, and this place closed a week after I posted that. :mellow:

I'm baffled that several high end NYC bars have Scratch bottles. We're in the same state and barely see them, maybe 3 times a year. :shrug:
