after rob, emmy, and i ran the summer solstice 15k course, we rehydrated at the gilded otter brewing company in new paltz. this was my second time at this great brewpub - last summer we stopped here after the allen ginsberg photo exhibit "beat and beyond" at the suny new paltz. while we only had time for "one" beer - they were 22 ounce glasses :D
the dusseldorf altbeir i tried was my second choice because no dunkelwiess was available (a dark wheat beer that i first tried at the evans brewing company this winter). the resourceful bartender, however, made an approximate substitute when he mixed the dusselforf in a tasting glass with heffenwiez! that was incredibly cool of him to do! rob had the rail trail pale ale and emmy went with their seasonal hefeweizen.
our beers: rail trail pale ale, hefeweizen, dusseldorf altbeir
