New Brewpub in Shawnee on the Delaware

Last weekend I ran into Leo Bongiorno co-owner, co-brewer and co-creator of Butternuts Brewing in NY. Leo tells me he's starting a new brewpub in what I believe is a converted skating rink in the Shawnee on the Delaware area. Stay tuned for more details but after talking to Leo, I'm very excited about the beers he's planning to brew. Leo related the stories behind Butternut's famous Porkslap, Heinnieweisse and Snapper Head names which are even funnier than I thought. I especially loved the Snapper Head origins which I'll save for later. Leo tells me he may start with a cream stout that he plans to name "cream stout." Based on what a wonderfully creative guy Leo is, I bet him a pint that his plan for plain common beer names quickly evolves back into some wonderfully creative beer names that I'm sure we'll all love. Stay tuned for details...
