    In Southern NY today and was in the Horseheads area, always wanted to visit this brewery, appointments were finished and I thought, "What the heck?!" What a cool experience, a two man operation, hung out with the brewer/owner and his assistant, sampled seven or eight different beers that were on tap, and talked beer. Ed (owner/brewer) brought out a small sample of Domination Ale (which is the main reason I went there) to taste it BEFORE he transferred it to the bourbon barrels which was pretty cool since it's the only barley they do and it's barrel aged so it was a rare treat to experience the before and after. He mentioned he really liked NN and I happened to have two in my trunk which I packed for the trip and never got to so I gave them both bottles. 'Bought several bottles to bring home and a growler of the IPA for a tasting at Millerbuffoon's on Friday night. I enjoyed their beers prior to my visit (especially the IPA) and I'm even more impressed after trying several today that were nothing less than solid. So here's to Ed & Ryan, I tip this glass to you guys - brew on! :)

    (Sorry for the long explanation, it was just a great experience and a great way to end the work day before the long drive back to PA, 'made the trip more fun!)
  8. I didn't have a R. C. cola handy, so the Nectar stood in. I'm giving it two thumbs up.

    Naughty Temple from the barrel. Good night cap, now to get it in the bottles!
  17. With all the talk of a new Victory Saison coming out I grabbed one of these from downstairs. No date anywhere on the bottle. Think the case is dated best by April ?? 2013. Still a good beer but age has not really helped or hurt. It did foam out a bunch on opening and is a bit under carbonated and no lacing. At under $40 a case its a great beer.


  18. It may take more than one to enjoy the state of the union.

    And you know what? First day Peeper's on shelves here, and the batch was bottled in mid-October. I am not a mathemascientologist, but it has been more than 90 days.

    Not my first time trying ZD, but finally had the time to give it a proper review. Now onto this:


    Simply one of the best DIPA I have ever had (now on my second 4 pack). Great news that they have started bottling it. If you are in DE or MD, do yourself a favor and grab a four pack. Cheers!

    That's so unfortunate! I scored 5 bottles by accident... i fell into them the other day that were bottled 12/7/12 after I had it super fresh on tap at a local bar.

    Regular Monster29. I haven't been able to get anyone to part with their BBMonsters yet. I've attempted throwing serious bottles at people too. It'll happen eventually.

    I guess you're referring to a bomber of NN? If so, I used to see them but haven't seen them in quite awhile but I do remember the bombers tasting a little more intense than the 12 oz bottles for some reason and can't explain it. I stopped in Harrisburg for dinner at McGrath's while driving home from a business trip a few years ago and they had NN on tap...it totally BLEW my mind!!! It was obviously a fresh keg and it dripped with hop resin, by far the best NN experience to date and hasn't been equaled since.
