It is once again Thursday and a popular day to go out for happy hours after work. No surprise here, I’m going to suggest you go out to a Craft beer bar for your post work drinks. There's a new kid in town, and he's getting a lot of attention.
McNeill’s Brewery of Brattleboro Vermont has come down to New York after 26 years of brewing. Legend has it (a bartender told me) that McNeill’s had always just been brewed and served only for their brewpub in Brattleboro. They were never brewing enough to get their beer to any great area outside of their locale.
I’m not sure if this was due to financial restraints or due to choice. Either way, it is here now and I am happy about it. I have yet to have their darker stuff, but the two Amber ales (Firehouse Amber, Ruby Extra Amber) I had were both delicious.
I have seen McNeill’s at a few bars over the past couple weeks. 3 craft beer bars (The Pony Bar, Blind Tiger, and Barcade) all have a McNeill’s beers listed on their websites.
Go get some!
Live life, love beer
