do they have any good belgium dark beers

If you are looking for good dark lagers go across the border to Germany. Schwartzbiers are one of my favorite styles.

douchebags-cum-hipsters at the other more known and respected

Huh? Hipsters are douchebags. You don't need to work for a bank to be a douchenozzle

Where Best Places for Local Brews ?

Hill Farmstead makes some appearences in NYC occasionally. I had the Arthur last week. I think the Jeffery had another one. Arthur was good stuff

Brewery apologises for Gandhi-bot beer

Was about to say the same thing. Really gross malt liquor in wide mouth 40oz bottles.

Carnegie Deli or Katz's?

The LA's have always felt the need to troll nyc boards. We don't pay attention to theirs.

2014 Omakase Odyssey

I have actually sat next to some of the worst people at the bar at 15 east. It happens everywhere. I'm talking financial douche bro in sweatpants and baseball cap asking "yo masa man, make me an uni hand roll bro". Another time it was a 10 year old veruca salt complaining about her toro.

Manhattan Bars for Local Beers

Bondurants on the UES has a fantastic selection. They consistently have a lineup of new and interesting beers and generally have a well crafted list.

Couldn't recommend it highly enough. Good bar food and bourbon selection too.

Prices getting stupid

Yeah it's gotten out of hand. $20/$30 seems a lot more commonplace now than just a few years ago

Truth Be Told... Further Evidence Local Brews Superiority Over... Port Jeff

Don't be fooled by beer labels whether they are minimalist or "wacky". The taste is what matters and the packaging doesn't indicate it

Czech beer in Russian Ambiance / Organic Peak and Hops

It's just a meh for me. Their black ipa as well. Single Ciut out of wrens is making some good stuff.

Jonkyo it doesn't really put a damper on things. Like everything else the world is not simply black and white. Like everything else in the food/drink world there are people into the actual craft and those just looking to make money. Most people fall somewhat in the middle

Didn't care one bit. This is a true story by the way

What's interesting is I've met one of the owners of the Bronx brewery at a party. As both a beer nerd and a person born in the Bronx I was pretty excited to talk to him. Unfortunately he knew nothing about beer and just told me it was an investment. So there goes that theory.

Their beer is just ok in my opinion. 21st amendment the same. But a simple logo doesn't make a beer good.

Delta Wants to Get You Drunk on Craft Beer

That works well for me. I usually fly delta for miles

Westbrook Gose. I come to praise thee.

Yeah it's an excellent beer. I pick cans up whenever I see them. That salty sour thing is addictive. First time I tried it was at Torst.

If anyone has access to it, definitely give it a shot.

I've also paired it with disparate things such as a really hearty beef stew and simple grilled fish. Worked well in both cases. Cut through the richness of the stew and the sourness complemented the fish.

Most racist terms from other languages come from the respective term for the color including the n word

Nope there is a definite racist angle. I'm also competent in Greek and know that mavro doesn't just mean dark. Shwartz is a definitely a racial epithet
