yesterday tony, wayne and i headed over to tuckahoe to check out growlers beer bistro. it was happy hour, so one perk was sampling the tap menu selections for only $4 - a pretty good deal as for pints of any kind... a fantastic one for craft beers!
tony and i started with the peekskill simple sour (wayne stuck to wine). passable for a light sour, but no body to speak of. the real highlight was the newly released ommegang's "iron throne" blonde ale - timed to coincide with the season three premiere of "game of thrones" tomorrow night. ommegang is one of my favorite breweries, and this one didn't disappoint.
i followed it up with another ommegang, the "barrier relief" a belgian style ipa. tony opted for the captain lawrence reserve, an american style double/imperial ipa, which clocked in with a 9.0 abv! it was served up in a 12 oz. goblet. both were excellent. tony finished up with a speakeasy black and white cookie stout for the road :D
food wise, have to mention the nachos (w/pulled pork) - which were so good (and went so quickly)that we had to order a second plate :O
if you're in or near tuckhoe, definitely stop in for a beer and nachos!
