In Pursuit of Ale regulars Elizabeth and Mary head up to New York for the weekend. The diligent drinkers sent in a li'l recap....
Mary and I went to NYC for the weekend. I thought you might want to hear about our beer adventures. We started off at a place called the Village Pourhouse, in the East Village. It was recommedned by Time Out New York as a great beer bar but was totally lame. just your average sports bar with sam adams and the irish imports. We then got smart and looked up beer advocate for their recs. We went to Blind Tiger, on the border of West/Greenwich village. They had a great selection of beers (including Sly Fox) but we didn't stay because it was way too crowded. not even standing room left. I did hear a couple say the following: boy: It looks like it's mostly beer and wine. girl:
The only drawback is that they didn't appear to serve food. Which seems typical - it was full of drunkorexic girls : ( and a few too many d-bag guys, but I guess that's New York for you"
Thanks for writing Elizabeth!
To note: Elizabeth later realized they did serve food. She also remembered that she had a Dekonick winter ale.
