"Each of our cocktails, whether they are for brunch or dinner," Hearth's Spirits and Service Director Christine Wright says, "has a New York spirit. We get as much of our food from the Greenmarket and local farms as possible, so we figured we should do the same with cocktails." Hearth opened their doors to a brunch crowd last weekend for the first time in ten years.

Now, their drinks all showcase New York-made spirits, from Glen Thunder corn whiskey to Finger Lakes maplejack. Check them out here.
Ever wonder who decides what beers go on the menu at your favorite restaurant or watering hole? We did too, and then we met David Flaherty and found out all about it. (We also found out about his first time...drinking craft beer, that is.)
