    Maibach

    BY:Josh and Brent

    Usually, when someone mentions the word “Maibock,” people think of a luxury car (the Maybach).  However, what we’re talking about is a little known (at least in the United States) seasonal beer style released in the early months of spring. Traditionally, spring beers in Germany are strong, very dark lagers called “Bock” beers or “Bockbier.”  […]

Roosevelt When we started the Sharon Springs Harvest Festival 4 years ago, we dreamed it to be an occasion to celebrate the harvest from our local farmers and a day to bring the community together.   The first  year we were thrilled when 500 […]

    Cuts Both Ways

    BY:Josh and Brent

      Beekman 1802 is devoted to all things “heirloom”, and in some sense this is a romantic way of saying that we value permanance. We love going through old buildings and houses and seeing built-in cabinets or light fixtures or windows that were created specifically for that place.  Craftsmanship aside, their value is intimately related […]

    Gartending: Extra pep for the a.m.

    BY:Warren

    Klaus is tired. He’s been on the road for the past two weeks. Klaus spent a sleepless week in New Orleans for Tales of the Cocktail, then Klaus traveled to Columbus, Ohio- where he reveled in his German heritage and the resident’s legendary thirsts. If you remember your history books, the Columbus, Ohio area is […]

    Black Currant Cordial

    BY:Josh and Brent

    There are three types of people in the world: those that love black currants, those that hate black currants, and those that have never tried black currants. In America, the majority of folks probably fall into the last category. As hosts of White Pine Rust disease which threatened the lumber industry, black currant bushes were […]

    Beekman 1802 Iced Tea

    BY:Josh and Brent

    We’ve tried many times to capture “summertime” in a glass, but nothing comes closer than a refreshing iced tea on a hot, sunny day.  Josh’s mom was a purist—ice, tea, and some lemon juice.  From the south, Brent’s family made tea that was syrupy sweet. When two world’s collided at Beekman Farm, the result was […]

    Bring on the flavor! Roasting garlic is one of the simplest, yet most flavorful methods to prepare this potent bulb. Click on the photos above to learn how we roast ours. Most of the produce we grow in the Beekman 1802 Heirloom Vegetable Garden are varieties that William Beekman would have grown himself. But there’s […]

  • Red Currant Jelly

    BY:Josh and Brent

    What does the color red taste like? For centuries, most Westerners would have probably answered “red currant jelly.” While red currants might be difficult to find in your local grocery store today, they were once a staple fruit in their native origin, Western Europe. Their relative ease of cultivation, and resistance to disease and pests […]

    Sunshine Egg Salad

    BY:Josh and Brent

      One of the thrills of owning a farm (or even a sizable backyard) is the joy of walking out and plucking fresh chicken eggs right from the roost.  At Beekman 1802, the eggshells come in the palest shade of blue to a rich leather brown, and the yolks are as bright orange as a […]

    BY:Warren

    For the Spring and Summer growing season, we bring you a new feature at Beekman 1802, the Soused Gnome.  He’ll teach  you how to “gartend”–create perfect seasonal cocktails using fresh ingredients from the garden.   Klaus is thirsty.
