Cracked open a St. Bernardus Christmas Ale during the game tonight since I had to get some work done while watching. Almost makes doing work tolerable.

If any of you ever find yourselves in East Bumfuck, MA (Western Mass), be sure to try Lefty's Pale Ale. Easily one of my favorites.

Had that at a beer festival one time but didn't like it. But then again at those things I am usually drunk and my notes afterwards are gibberish.

It is worth trying again if you ever get the chance.

It's not merely the beer. It's also the pair of tits you are drinking it off of.

The only Left Hand brew I had, or I should say that I actually remember, was the Stranger which I did not really like.

personally like The Stranger (partially due to it being the best named beer ever), but would definitely rate their milk stout higher as a beer.

I think I liked the Milk Stout better than the Nitro Milk Stout. Both are delicious and I will be having them again.

Flying Monkeys is one of the best Ontario breweries IMO. Smashbomb IPA is pretty good, too. Where did you get your hands on that double IPA? I can't even get it here and I'm two hours from the brewery.

There is a beer club here in town that does mass orders of craft beer through the local liquor store, and it was one of the choices (my first time ordering with them). Got two 710 ml bottles of it. Glad to hear the bear is good, we dont get a lot of good craft around here, so this beer club should hopefully pick up the slack

Is craft beer not a big thing up in Canada? Even beer distributors and red neck bars around here have craft beer selections now. Although I think Philly may be one of the better beer cities.

It's huge and growing. The problem is cross-province and cross-border distribution. It surprised me that Hover was able to get that stuff from Ontario, but the club explains why.

There's limited selection for me from breweries outside of Ontario. It's slowly improving as customer demand is growing, though.

Greater Philly is definitely one of the better beer areas in the world. Very strong local brewing scene, excellent import networks, etc.

I bought a New Albion Ale today. I never heard of it and the bottle looked cool. It was the original "craft beer" supposedly and hasn't been brewed in 30 years. They got together with Sam Adams brewery to bring it back. This stuff is delicious.

Every bar in WC, with very rare exceptions, serves food late. What a douche.

JL, if that's the original voodoo donut recipe, be prepared to drink the worst beer of your life. If it's the new recipe, well, I guess they could have only improved on the original.

I would do Jakes between classes. Generally not pregaming there as I lived near Gay St.

Also, Jake's lets you bring Riggtown into the bar. Which is nice.

Guess I'll start praying.

I rather enjoyed the Maple Bacon Ale in small quantities and sharing with friends (which I will do with this). But I'll pray it's the new one.

It's great in small quantities. All of the Voodoo beers are like that. Adventurous.

For those that haven't had a chance to get down there, Cape May Brewery is an awesome little brewery, and makes some pretty stellar beers. Their Hefeweizen was probably the best Wheat beer I've ever had.

Nice heads up. I'll be on the lookout, do they sell in bottles or just draft? When I'm at the shore it's Ocean City, so not a whole lot of shore bar visits.

As she said its strictly drafts, but they do growler fills. A single beer is $5 but you can get a growler fill for $10 (I think) and you can even bring your own. If they actually have it, get the Centennial IPA. All of their beers are decent, but I wouldn't say any are amazing. They are still pretty new at the process and there is variation in taste in between batches, but its still always a good time.
