Pre-Vacation Beer Review!

Been a while, just can't find anything new for the last few weeks except I did come across one hidden gem. That said when I left work yesterday I didn't intend on going on a pub crawl but did a mini one anyway. The intent was to go to the Blind Tiger (had a 2007 Brooklyn Chocolate Stout on tap) but really found a gem at the 124 Rabbit Club on MacDougal at Minetta. This is right across the street from the famous Cafe Wha. Not much on tap but a great bottle selection. A lot of Belgians. Made for Gator.

1) Southern Tier Brewing - Uber Sun - Imperial Summer Wheat - 8% Good way to start the vacation off. Is 8% Drinkable, Probaly not. To me this is like a mild IPA.

2) Oskar Blues - Ten Fidy - Imperial Stout 9.5% - Great smokey and coffee like. Heard a lot about this and found a couple of rare (at this time of the year) 4 packs at Mo's. Gonna be hurtin on the flight tomorrow!

3) Another Oskar Blues offering - Old Chub - Scotch Ale This ends it, see you in August!

If you really like those Belgians, you gotta check out BXL Cafe, 125 West 43rd. When you get back home , of course!
