New catch herring at R&D

I went three times this season. Each time I got a double order thinking it would be enough. Each time I had a third.

Beer pairing suggestions for a Low Country boil

I would think a good crisp Pilsener and a session IPA would do well here. Founders All Day IPA would be good and cans of a Czech or German Pils.

"This What Especiale Tastes Like" Billboard?

They all kind of taste the same to me. I guess equally made beers like this are in need of a blind tasting. Then make up some micheladas to disguise the taste

Shorts! - And Reservation Timing Help

I would say the Sahara is quite different from July/Aug Manhattan

Shorts! - And Reservation Timing Help

You'll be fine at Babbo in shorts. Plenty of people wear shorts here in the summer time, I'm a native New Yorker and I don't think people will look at you askance if you're wearing shorts on a 90+ and muggy day. I wore shorts to EMP on a day such as that and it was fine. Just wear a decent shirt and you'll be fine. Don't let your comfort level be determined by people's strange aversion to bare legs. Besides if people do look at you funny you will never have to see them again.

The Next PBR: 22 Old Beers Ready for a Rebrand

I've never understood people who get up in arms or feel validation regarding these lists and their favorites. On almost every topic they are just click bait and offer nothing substantial. This article really just listed a bunch of light American lagers.

The Next PBR: 22 Old Beers Ready for a Rebrand

Thanks. I don't think we have the IPA in the area but will look for it. Definitely interested in what those IPAs tasted like. Have you had the Pinner? I agree with Dontov. Really tasty though I am a fan of low alcohol brews.

I haven't had Russ this year but in years past they have been comparable. The ones I had were fantastic today.

The Next PBR: 22 Old Beers Ready for a Rebrand

Having never had that would it be similar to any of the throwback ipas on the market? I tried Pinner in a mixed Oskar Blues pack and thought it was good.

Thank you for reminding me. I went to Grand Central today and they were fantastic. Not lean at all.

Well I am sure PBR went up when it became the new thing which was the point of the article.

Why would you be glad to see it on the list? Wouldn't you rather pay less?

Manhattan visit planning - Phase I

If you're willing to go to Astoria Koliba serves classic renditions of Czech food and would be worth a shot

Best Indian for Lunch in London

Looking for a place that will make me hate Indian food in NYC. I have a free day tomorrow before dinner so anywhere on near a tube stop will work.

I can handle spice by the way so really looking for an authentic spot that will blow my mind as a NYer. Cheers in advance

Porters & Stouts - Their Place in the Craft Beer Pantheon

Purely anecdotal but interesting story. I love dry Irish stouts and porters and lower alcohol stouts period. I can enjoy a nice imperial stout or porter but that's few and far between. I also love schartzbier so I cleary loved the roasted flavor without the hard kick.

About ten years back when I was on beer advocate(before I knew the Internet was a wretched hive of scum and villainy) I private messaged Garrett Oliver about my love of Irish Stouts and to see if he would make one as a seasonal or a brewmasters reserve. He basically said that not enough people like the style and it wouldn't be economically viable. Fast forward a few years later and they have a seasonal bottled stout around St Patrick's day. It's quite good by the way and hopefully it means the scene is shifting

East 70s lunch?

There's a Sophie's Cuban near where you are if you're by the hospitals. Their regular food is ok but I like their empanadas and ther daily specials esp the ox tail.

Also nearby is Yvonnes Jamaican food truck. Pretty much everything there is good.

UES Staples

That's basically my list. If also add you're close to Agata and Valentina. Better quality and actually cheaper than the chain supermarkets for fresh vegetables and meats. Their premade half sandwiches are also good for when you need a quick bite and have zero time.

Grand St.: Bánh Mì Saigon or Paris Sandwich and other treasures?

Haven't had Bahn mi Saigon in a while. How does it compare to Bahn mi so 1? Or whatever the one on Broome and Mott is called

Headed over to London in a couple of weeks. Haven't been there in about a year. Anything new to look out for?

Thanks

Spinach Pie

I think they mean from the refrigerator. If so toaster oven for one piece. Oven for more. Try 325 in toaster over. 350 in oven.

The Connoisseur’s Way to Pair Food With Beer

Definitely agree on Schwartzbier and shellfish. Heavenly. Too bad most oyster bars don't have it.

Yet another NYC report (if you care)....

From what I've seen people with that many service issues are either overly sensitive or the cause of the issues.

Yet another NYC report (if you care)....

That's a lot of "rude" service.

SAB Miller buys Meantime to enter UK craft beer market

I had a few interesting beers at their brewery that weren't widey released. The regular offerings are a bit ho hum.
