As i am recently commuting to the NYC for work I figured I would explore some places recommended by the Gotham Imbiber. That I did and some thoughts are coming up next, but then I fell across this:
1) Brooklyn Black Op's - Hopefully this is in celebration of the return of "24" but I stumbled into this at Super Discount Wine & Spirits. This is like drinking beer & Scotch in the same drink. Very potent. The label says it is limited to 1,000 cases and Jason (the owner of SDW&S) indicated that he was only allocated a six pack.
I did hit a couple of bars on the way back to GCT. First up was the Tribeca Tavern where I had a Troegs Mad Elf Ale. Right next door was Another Room. Another Room was kind of a goth beer bar. Good selection and I had a Young's Chocolate Stout on tap which was a typical flavorless British offering. Finally I made it to the Peculier Pub. I had a delicious Delirium Tremens on tap. I need to go back to this place to sit there and drink properly.
