ON THE ROAD…

Recently I took a road trip from Brooklyn, NY to Manchester, Vermont. Whenever I travel, it is always part pleasure trip, part business trip.

The following are my observations regarding recent visits to Saratoga Springs, New York and Montpelier, Vermont.

The first stop, Druthers, in Saratoga Springs, NY, offered a “All-In India Pale Ale” and “Fully Committed Double IPA”. Beer Notes provided by the establishment note that the former, an “American-Style IPA”, is brewed with Polaris and Amarillo hops, the latter is less identified other than to note that it is 4% more alcohol by volume than the “All-In”.

(The former is second from the left and the latter rests to the far right.)

Next stop was Three Penny Taproom, in Montpelier, Vermont. Montpelier is a college town that hosts the Vermont College of Fine Arts, Community College of Vermont, Goddard College and the New England Culinary Institute. The N.E.C.I. operates at least three restaurants in Montpelier. The town is also the capitol of the Green Mountain State.

Three Penny Taproom posts a list of beers that are local and well-rounded, the service is friendly and efficient, the staff is well versed in both the beers and the food menu that don’t rest on the regularly expected pub-grub. The quality of the ingredients is not compromised and the dishes tasty, well executed and plated.

Poutine – beer gravy, cheddar curds, herbs, with Hill Farmstead “Edward”, an “American Pale Ale” at 5% abv.
