I bet you all thought the sun had set on the Shmaltz Beertography Contest, didn't you? Well if you caught our teases last week you may have had an inkling that we're not quite done just yet.

Join the Beer Gangs of New York on May 17 at the Shmaltz Brewing Company in Clifton Park, NY for our 1st Anniversary Bash! Last year we cranked up our new 50-Barrel Brewery and now we are ready to celebrate what we’ve accomplished in twelve short months! Friends, neighbors and craft beer connoisseurs will be treated to a rare offering of barrel aged casks of Death of a Contract Brewer. Revel in the ultimate beer experience with a delicious selection of core and barrel-aged Shmaltz libations and special offerings from gangs of our favorite brewers from around New York State. Rock out to the smokin’ hot talent of Brookyln's own WORKOUT. Feast on the savory selections from a round up of local food trucks! 

GENERAL ADMISSION $25, DD $15

If you're in NYC, we've got you covered. We have a charter bus leaving from 514 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn at 9 am on Saturday, May 17. The bus will depart from the brewery at 5:30 p.m. Cost is only $50 including the cost of general admission to the party.

Our anniversary + you = the party of the year!

March Beertographer of the Month - @thebeerhaul

Congrats to Wes aka @thebeerhaul on winning the illustrious title of March Beertographer of the Month. For those keeping score at home, there are now only eight more slots left in this year's inaugural Beertographer of the Year competition. It feels like 2014 is flying by! 

Starting today we've begun accepting entries for our April Beertographer of the Month. Don't forget you need to use the hashtag #AprilBOTM. Feel free to mention @beertography too.

So now without further ado, we salute Wes on the win and let him ascend the throne until the April Beertographer of the Month is crowned! Don't forget to check out The Beer Haul on Facebook as well as on Instagram!

Photography has been my profession since 2007 and has included weddings, portraits, photojournalism, and travel photography. About a year and half ago I came across the work of Mike Donk of Brew Bokeh and Michael Kiser of Good Beer Hunting. Their photographic approach to craft beer inspired me to do something similar. I started The Beer Haul with the goal to document breweries in a sort of behind the scenes/day in the life style and to shoot quality bottle shots. I don't do any of it for financial gain but to produce something that I hope the craft beer community will enjoy. Thanks to the Beertography community here for voting for my photo. I hope you enjoy the rest of my work and I hope to bring you more photos of your favorite beers and breweries in the future. Cheers!
