The restaurant Beer Table in Park Slope is a mecca for beer lovers with appetites. They boast 25 specialty changing bottles, 7 rotating drafts, a cask ale and a cellar of vintage and rare beers - not to mention a full menu of thoughtful food.
In a huge bonus to midtown commuters, owner, Justin Philips, opened The Beer Table Pantry in 2011, a retail store in Grand Central stocked with craft bottled beers and a to-go growler bar.
We had the opportunity to talk to Justin about opening and running his beer business.

If The Shins met Pretty Lights and they got together and had a baby, and then the baby from The Shins and Pretty lights met Radiohead and then they got together and had a baby, you would get Caribou. But enough with the Pineapple express anecdotes. The canadian foursome consisting of Daniel Snaith, Ryan Smith, Brad Weber and John Schmersal took the stage at Grand Central in Downtown Miami and served up a performance that left their mark on those who were fortunate enough to witness the band's first appearence in Miami.
There are a couple of things I love when I go to see any band or show. One of those things is when I hear noises that i've never heard before. Caribou's intensely aggressive array of noises in their set contributed to a very tangible, fun and even provocative performance. I also love watching the crowd and seeing an immediate relationship with the band or performer. The off beat and unconvential dancing the crowd conveyed reflected literally the same prose style that exemplifies Caribou's stage presence. Not to mention front man, Dan Snaith, couldn't even lift his tambourine without hearing an uproar from the crowd. Saying the crowd appreciated the performance on this beautful Miami, Tuesday night is nothing short of an understatement. As if the place wasn't already wild, the dance party soon went into full swing once the band performed their hit, Odessa, which included a flute solo (THAT you don't see everyday). The vocals, drums, bass; everything seems to be subtle yet upbeat at the same time. Leaving the crowd chanting and hollering for a an encore, Caribou came back out after Odessa and played another one of their hits, Sun. A group that can make the music Caribou has with the use of drums, bass, guitars and a synth are a check plus in my book. You can always appreciate the use of instruments in their genre of music. With this, we wish the best to the talented and blooming Caribou as they embark on their tour to Europe.
