Took a Friday ride to Kearny to visit a throwback bar called “Snug Harbor”. My suggestion would be to show up there in a bathrobe and relax. Shannon greets you at the bar with a big “ol’ Irish smile. A nod of the head from all the locals says welcome and the craft offerings did not disappoint. The Mast Landing Stout was rich and flavorful while the Magnify Twinings IPA was juicy and strong. Conversation was lively and jovial around the bar as this collection of hard-workers celebrated another week of labor well done. My wife and I walked out of Snug Harbor refreshed and our faith in the human spirit re-invigorated. Take a trip there and tell Shannon that the running couple sent you!
Take a break from your X-mas shopping and get to the Ambulance Brew House ASAP. Hill Farmstead Double Galaxy is on tap and makes a hop-head like myself dance to Christmas music. I love galaxy hops and the juicy full-bodied flavor of this beer was a perfect dance partner. At 8% and a 12oz. pour, it was just enough to relax and take in the beauty of the Christmas decorations of the brew house and its over-all Christmas spirit. Hill Farmstead really nailed it!
Get there ASAP…..Choco-Lit Pastry Party is truly a party for the taste buds! A 10% Imperial Porter w/ Chocolate, w/ lactose, and a touch of vanilla. Did I say chocolate?
A strong character for a porter, this beer smells as delicious as it tastes. Available in cans, this beer is great as a late night holiday sipper while watching “Its a Wonderful Life”!
I was just turned on to a new television series airing on WNET locally here with a map of other stations broadcasting throughout New York. This is perfect for the beer lover/ runner on those dark lonely winter nights. Sit back and enjoy.
