City Island Beer Company
The craft brewer's life is a busy one, especially during October when the all-important Oktoberfest beckons from Germany. The tradition has endured for more than two hundred years, drawing in more than six million people annually, and making it the world's largest beer festival. While imitations have sprung up all over the world, diehard beer lovers and the brewers who keep them happy know to go to Munich for the real thing.

Just back from the sixteen-day event in Bavaria, Paul Sciara, president of City Island Beer Company, was able to find a few minutes to chat with the Fork in the Road about his brewery, the Bronx, and Brooklyn Pour.

Unlike many of the newer craft brewers, it favors highly carbonated "bright" beers, mostly sold in heavy 750ml bottles from Europe, which makes them perfect for aging or drinking fresh. We talked with Larry Bennett, Communications Director at Brewery Ommegang, to learn what Ommegang has in store for this fall.

Back when I was a corporate drone, slogging away in my office with nothing but a spectacular 37th floor view and my misery to keep me company, the Midtown Heartland Brewery became a favorite after work (or sometimes mid-work) stop for a beer and a fried pickle. Little did I know that founder Jon Bloostein was also once a corporate drone who gave up a life in finance to open a pub.
