    Thanks for the props mate!

    You have a great blog here, I like the way you write. I too have had many interactions with bar tenders and wait staff around town similar to the ones you recount. If it wasn’t so unbearably sad it’d be hilarious!

    Thanks Alvey, you’ve got a great collection of beers, hope to enjoy more of them. Saw you got in that Norwegian DIPA, hopefully there’s still some left!

    If you want the best store in Hudson on your list, you gotta have Casanova’s on there. We had KBS, they didn’t, nuff said. We have a cool blog, too.

    Thanks Frank. I haven’t personally been to the store yet, which is why I hadn’t included it. But you’re right, I’ve heard alot about you guys. I’ll say hi when I stop in.

    Casanova’s has a fantastic single bottle selection…at least 70 single bottles.
