Re: Vermont

Late to the party on this one, but in the beer wasteland that is Clinton County and Franklin County Plattsburgh has a couple stops - both in Plattsburgh. OVAL and Valcour are decent enough but will probably be a letdown from all the better VT breweries. I'd skip Lake Placid and Plattsburgh Beer Co. ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

My main reason for choosing them (never made it to bissell or some others) was because they were the only place open a bit later on a Monday night....lots of breweries were closed on Mondays. If you ever want disappointment (or at least to have your options reduced considerably), try vacationing in...

I love root beer, but this stuff is vile. The Ginger ale is even worse.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Really dig the Hafis Rd. space. Makes for a nice and easy detour on my way to work for the evening shift.

Re: 2016 in review

I'm posting this with the qualifier that I haven't tried something from every one of these new breweries: Of all the names listed there are only 2 I would full out vouch for (HHOE and Barncat), with 3 or 4 more falling under the "potential is there" category for me. Out of the handful I ha...

Re: 2016 in review

Did this many brewers really come onboard in 2016? Is the ratio of good or potentially good brewers to mediocre really as bad as I think it is? No, I pulled that number out of my ass. :roll: Easy there cowboy. I didn't post this to cast doubt upon your site or list. If it came off that way I apolog...

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

Chris is awesome. His price on Prairie growler fills was the best I've seen anywhere outside Oklahoma.

That whole little Main St in Lewistown has some neat shops. The bistro a couple doors down will let you BYOB if it comes from Chris' shop.
