There’s been an outpouring of remembrances about our great friend Ray Deter. This is one of the best we’ve heard so far, from Jonathan White, who for six years met up with Ray every Friday to have lunch. We hope you’ll remember Ray by joining us at A Toast To Ray next Monday (you can buy tickets or donate to the Ray Deter Memorial Fund here). So, what do a back-to-basics dairy man, a sardonic beer lover, and one of the greatest mathematical minds of all time have in common? Take it away Jonathan… [Read more…] about Jonathan White Of Bobolink Farm Remembers Ray Deter
The third annual July Good Beer Month has been bittersweet. As most of The Good Beer Seal community are aware, Good Beer Seal and Beer Sessions Radio co-founder Ray Deter passed away. To celebrate Ray’s life, The Good Beer Seal community will close out the month with “A Toast to Ray,” on Monday, August 1st from 7-10 p.m. at Ray’s bar, dba Brooklyn (113 North 7th Street in Williamsburg). All proceeds from the event will go to the Ray Deter Memorial Fund, to benefit Ray’s family, including his two sons.
“A Toast to Ray” will be co-sponsored by Beer Sessions Radio/Heritage Radio Network, Jimmy Carbone and the Good Beer Seal, and Jonathan White of Boblink Farm, which will be providing a whole pig, raw oysters, cheese and bread. Local breweries (Sixpoint, Saison Dupont, Brooklyn Brewery, and Kelso, among others) will be donating limited beers for purchase. Other vintners will be donating whiskies, bourbons and other rare spirits. Food will be provided by Fette Sau, Tchoup Chop, Jimmy’s No. 43, Heritage Foods USA, and Waterfront Ale House. Snacky Tunes will dj, with more entertainment TBA.
Ticket options include a $20 all-you-can-eat-pay-for-your-drinks or a $50 drinks-included option. You may also donate additional funds directly to Ray’s family from the ticket link. Admission includes access to a silent auction of rare beers and spirits provided by Spuyten Duyvil and importer B United, among others.

One of the great things about most craft beer lovers is they just really like to have fun. We host many events every month at Jimmy’s No. 43, and the overwhelming majority are really laid back. We invite brewers to join us, to mix and mingle with both first-timers and regulars. There’s no price for admission (you pay as you go), and it’s a chance to make new friends, even if only for a night. [Read more…] about Oyster Night With Lagunitas
