My wife and I are going to Philly and NYC for a few days.  I'm looking forward to some beer/pub research.

I was in NYC last weekend.  The local homebrewers (a great bunch, BTW) met me at Rattle N Hum near The Empire State Building.  I think it was on 33rd between 5th and Madison.  They have a web site.

Great selection!  They had an IPA festival recently, so many were still on tap.  They had 5 gravity casks and 2 hand pumps, plus something like 40 taps.  I didn't have food while there, but what I saw looked great (like a proper English breakfast).

Two big thumbs up if you're in midtown.
I'll have to give them another chance.  The one time I was there I had the worst bartender I've ever had (and I have been to a few bars in my day).  Normally when I sit at the bar I get a little faster service than at a table, but not with this guy.  My first three choices from the cask menu were out (ha had to check with a server to find this out on each request) so I decided to get a sampler of 4 small glasses.  20 minutes later and he only had three of the four.  I think he was stoned or hung over or otherwise unable to remember simple tasks, like glance at a customer on occasion.
My favorite pub in Manhattan is Blind Tiger in the W. Village.
Philly has too many favorite pubs.  What a great beer town.

No brewing, but lots of packaging work to be done. I'm bottling my BoPils for the Pilsner Urquell competition tomorrow. I also need to transfer an IPA to another keg after hitting it with gelatin so I can transport it to my brother's b-day party Saturday. And finally I wrap up the weekend with my son's 6th birthday party Sunday. It's a kids party, so plenty of drinking will be requied afterwards.

I have a yeast slurry to use, so I'll be making either a faux pils/cream ale/Kolsch type ale or a brown porter (because I have a hankering for a Black Butte clone).  Still stocking up for football season and a full crew each Sunday!

A Sorachi Ace Saison  split batch w/ WY3711 in one and T-58 in the other, maybe blending it back together after a few taste trials . .

Also, cleaning / sanitizing about two dozen kegs and doing the same on about 60 wine bottles.
Just brew it...

I might brew one final hefeweizen for the season.  Actually, I might brew a dunkelweizen.  Definitely bottling/corking my 2010 dry mead.

I'm brewing an oak ale. I've been brewing for years and never made anything oaked. Be interesting to see whether or not I like the results!

Cheers!

I am participating in the Blue Collar BBQ & Arts Fest in a town nearby. I am setting up a tent as an artist, as a member of a new club called the Unsettled Ale Society, and I will be brewing a batch of beer on site. I am making an IPA along the lines of Green Flash. I will try to post some pics tomorrow, er, later today. Wow, it's late...

Either a Pumpkin Ale for the fall or an Oatmeal Stout. One will get done this weekend and the other the following week or 2.  Pretty excited for the Pumpkin Ale thought,

I chilling a dark wheat now. 45% 2-row, 44% raw wheat (half of it lightly toasted,) 6% pale chocolate and carafa II and the rest a blend of crystal malts. I cereal mashed the wheat with one pound of the 2-row. It's about a $10 batch, as cheap as I can make one. The mash took a couple of hours. I bought a 27 lb bucket of raw wheat for $11.

Next up is a Cream ale or CAP but I'm Too tired to brew again today.
