For a while now I’ve had the idea of doing an all Gueuze and Lambic tasting with the guys from Team Upstate NY. Diving into this, I knew it would be a massive undertaking. Thankfully the guys put up with my bullshit I think we pulled off a tasting to go down in the record books.
After one of my last beer runs up to Hill Farmstead I was looking for someplace new to hit for eats. Lost Nation is located just about halfway in between Greensboro and Waterbury, and after having their Gose several times on tap at many of the local Vermont bars and eateries it was a no brainer to make this one of my stops.
Totally forgot to post these bad boys. Pretty epic lineup of bottles for James’ 30th birthday. Check it:
Ebenezer’s Pub has been on my bucket list for what seems like ages. I think I first took interest in Eb’s when I started paying attention to Draft Magazine’s Top 100 list and it was always prominently featured year after year. Of course running in the New England beer circles I run in the pub is always touted with high praise. And I’ve come across countless articles mentioning Eb’s as the “Greatest Bar in America You’ve Never Heard Of”, on a list of “Top Bars to Visit Before You Die” or something of the like. After my first visit to Ebenezer’s Pub, meeting Chris Lively and his crew, and attending one of his amazing events, I’m inclined to agree with the sentiments above.
