Totally Normal Amount of Craft Beer to Bring “Car Camping”…

What we took to Lincoln Pond this weekend. (More on that later). This isn’t including the shitty beer and the hard alcohol. The run down:

  • Maine Beer Co. – Mean Old Tom
  • Keegan Ales – Joe Mama’s Milk
  • Adirondack Pub and Brewery – Cocoa-llaboration (Barrel-Aged Chocolate Smoked Porter collab with Crossroads Brewing)
  • Adirondack Pub and Brewery – Barrel Aged Fat Scotsman (Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy aged in Jack Daniels Barrels)
  • Adirondack Pub and Brewery – Whiskey Sour (Belgian Black Ale aged in Apple Jack Whiskey Oak Barrels with Lactobacillus added)
  • Adirondack Pub and Brewery – Adirondack Double Mocha Stout (on nitro, in Ruck growler)
  • Troegs – Nugget Nectar
  • The Alchemist – Heady Topper
  • Pre-Ban Four Loko – Cellar-aged two years

Yeah, I still have some old illegal Four Loko, what of it? Doesn’t everyone craft beer drinker out there age caffeinated Four Loko like they cellar limited-release barrel-aged stouts? No?

Craft Beer Exchange [Beer Gas]

Have you guys checked this out? The Sunoco across from SUNY Albany (and a smaller selection at the one on Everett) now do growler fills. And they’ve stepped up their bottle and can selection too. Nothing too fancy, but much better than you’d expect at a gas station. And for the whole month of February they’re giving away a growler with each fill. Not bad!

I stopped there on Saturday while Elise was getting a massage and snagged two beers. Wolaver’s Oatmeal Stout and Troegs Hop Back Amber Ale, both under 12 bucks. The guys are changing the kegs themselves but I was assured that they were bring people in to do the cleaning of the lines regularly. I’m totally okay with this.

Their website lists what beers they have on tap and when the list was last updated. Check it out if you get a chance.
