I got a new job!
I’m very happy to announce that I am helping out one of my favorite restaurants, Little Tibet, becoming their beverage director. This is a dream come true.
I think I can do it. Beer has been my latest obsession. I have no qualms about not being into it before because there just wasn’t much to explore when I was younger. This new revolution of brew has really caught me.
For the menu, I love sours, farmhouse ales, and local beers so I will get them as much as possible. I also have a bunch of concepts that I want to accomplish; beer is just another source of inspiration for me. I don’t want to say what they are yet because I want to make them concrete and not just an idea floating in the air. I am drawing out the plans now though….
Reasons why I am doing this:
– Getting to know the business of beer, learning about distributors, importers, and the other people involved.
– Choosing the beers seems like fun. My home fridge is full of beer right now, so I might as well have a restaurant to fill too.
– Little Tibet are talented, progressive, and my friends. The owners, Tenzin and Lobsang, are always present and have been inspiring to me. I love their openness, and I want more people to know about them.
We’re having an event this Saturday, May 16th to celebrate Queens Beer Week while showing our support for the people of Nepal and also Students for a Free Tibet. We have every single bottled beer brewed in Queens for the whole week (until they sell out), and on Saturday we will have a raffle party to close out Queens Beer Week. For more information and to tell your friends, see the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1651019968453125/
The Queens beers are realllllllly high quality. And the beer week has been fun to plan for. I definitely want to do beer weeks from other states as well. Here we are currently limited to bottles, but we’ll see where the future takes us.
