Finkel & Garf Brewing Company is a collaboration between Eric and Dan Garfinkel, a father (Finkel) and son (Garf). We share a love of well crafted beer and an appreciation for the life experiences we have enjoyed with a beer in hand.
We are often asked why we chose to put toys in the Finkel & Garf crest rather than images of hops and barley. The answer is because we are all still kids at heart. Toys are fun and they remind us not to take ourselves too seriously.
Toy around with the thought of sampling these from 5-7pm tonight at Pettyjohn’s!

Excellent. Head leaves a small ring around the glass, but not much retention to speak of. Pretty malt-forward. Get a lot of cracker, cereal grain on the nose with some floral hints from the hops. Light bodied, which leads to some obvious diacetyl notes once it warms up a bit. Still very drinkable.
Hazy deep Amber under a thin ivory foamy cap. Lovely nose that’s dry hopped leafy and grassy with a gorgeous fresh picked flowers kind of floralness about it with a gentle biscuity crystal malt undertone. Smooth crisp Amber biscuity base malt that’s a touch sweet and gently caramelly with a delightful and bright earthy leafy dry hop tone.
Citrus, lemon, a little sweeter tropical fruit soft malt a touch of bread soft residual sugar. Somewhat floral. Golden pour nice clarity lace and head is white. Flavor is rather balanced soft malt presence a little residual sweetness adds a light tropical aspect to it. Floral grass and mildly citric hops.
Oatmeal Milk Stout
Pours dark opaque brown with a bubbly beige head. Tastes like dark chocolate, oatmeal, roasted malt, and some burnt toast. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like dark chocolate, roasted malt, oat meal, and some burnt toast.
