The Hudson Valley area is giving me such a chubby these days
How is Forever Overhead? I'm a sucker for sour IPAs. Comet Rider from Modern Times turned me on to them
anyone in this thread from albany? if so, please DM me. need a favor that I'd send a box of beer or glass (or both) for.
Well, apparently my local shop will be getting Hudson Valley kegs, along with sloop and Suarez which I already knew about....have to stop Tonight!
Been there. Decent spot.
For the downstate-Upstate faction, Equilibrium in Middletown is supposed to be opening their taproom doors this month. Space looks pretty cool. I've had some of the hoppy stuff - it's pretty good. Had a fruited sour - it was pretty bad.
Anyway, I'm hoping this fills in the map on the west side of the river. You could make an afternoon of this and Rushing Duck - which wouldn't necessarily be on the same circuit as, say, Hudson Valley and Suarez / Sloop, etc.
Anyone else have anything from them? Looks like they've had pretty expansive distro for a newcomer.
Yeah I'm not getting the hype with these guys at all. Had a few of their IPAs now and all were just ok... I must be missing something.
Respectfully disagree, good sir.
Man, I'm really digging this glass. Have to.pick a couple up
Also, coffee cup in 375's , most excellent!
Checking this out after Suarez tomorrow...cant wait.
At that point it's just a bunch of dudes standing around drinking beers while one other person does all the work
Nice. Wanted to get there this weekend, just didn't work out
Super Psyched for my hometown guys. Very good brewery and fun to visit. Their stouts are KILLER.
I am friends with Dino so I will keep my hated to myself, mostly.
Zach is an arrogant fuck and I have never met him and he makes me angry.
I like Zack. He's a lot to take in, but once you meet him and know him he's a good dude.
I also like the fact that he's braggadocios. It's funny.
I've had a lot of not good beers from them, and they treated my friends like shit on one of their trips there, so that added to my hatred of the hashtags I'm not fond of them. I'll give you that I've never had any of their barrel aged stouts.
Sucks your friends got treated poorly. I let them know that I would be in the area for a funeral (of one of our own from this site), and they treated me like a king and had a really nice bottleshare.
I'd also agree that some of their beers were "just ok" the 1st time I went 1.5 years ago, but their shit was on point when I was there 2 weeks ago.
