After Sunset At Syracuse Last Sunday

We always seem to get lucky with the conditions at baseball games. Well, except for the condition of the guy nearby in the crowd at Blue Jays games. Always the drunk idiot. Otherwise, it’s been swell. Like last Sunday. Hoffman coneys. Empire Amber. I’ve cream for the kids just as a decade ago. An attentive … Continue reading “After Sunset At Syracuse Last Sunday”

Canada Particularly More Free Than Syracuse Today

Flipping around the channels last night after the Red Sox creamed the Indians, I saw an item on Syracuse channel 5 news that was fairly shocking: City workers were fired for living outside of City limits. Here is the story in the Post-Standard: Eight of the 12 Syracuse city workers who were suspended Wednesday on … Continue reading “Canada Particularly More Free Than Syracuse Today”

I Never Thought I Would Write This: Syracuse Wins!

I was conscious for most of it and listening intently on the radio when I was awake. At one point, half drifting, I thought that Syracuse had been caught in the second half, that the score was 31-21 Louisville, that the rational universe had imposed itself again. But no, the Orange won 38-35 over a … Continue reading “I Never Thought I Would Write This: Syracuse Wins!”

The Blue Tusk, Syracuse, New York

The last of what Lew Bryson has called “the triumvirate” of Syracuse’s temples to ale, the Blue Tusk, was my favorite for the mood of the day. Much Middle Ages on tap as well as Stone and Victory and even Blue Lite for who knows why. Loud and chatty, we walked in and immediately got … Continue reading “The Blue Tusk, Syracuse, New York”

Awful Al’s, Syracuse, New York

Never was a beer from Stone so appropriate…  We only stopped in Awful Al’s briefly when walking between Clark’s and the Blue Tusk. Two reasons. I was told to stop taking photos and it is a reminder of how great the anti-smoking laws are for the consumption of fine beers. It is, however, the dimmest … Continue reading “Awful Al’s, Syracuse, New York”

Clark’s Ale House, Syracuse, New York

Click above for bigger beauty I came away from a visit to Clark’s Ale House knowing I should visit it again in a different circumstance. In the middle of a semi-sub-roaring tour of the town with friends, the quiet of Clark’s was a little disconcerting and, given a wrong moment, felt like pretense…but I figure … Continue reading “Clark’s Ale House, Syracuse, New York”

It Is August So Make The Best Of What Is Left Guided By These Tidbits Of Thursday Beer News

Remember? These Thursday news headlines are getting longer. I wonder what Stan would say about my lack of control. I write that because last Monday’s musings from Stan were so well managed. Made me think about how plunking down this weekly post speaks as much or more to my interesting in writing as my interest … Continue reading “It Is August So Make The Best Of What Is Left Guided By These Tidbits Of Thursday Beer News”

Finally – A Quiet Week In Beer Thursday Links

Quiet. So quiet Stan is taking a month off. You know what he does in these little gaps of his? Not judging. No. Not me.  It’s election time in Ontario all of a sudden but, again like in 2014, I expect a quiet sleepy time for beer as debating point on public policy. That is … Continue reading “Finally – A Quiet Week In Beer Thursday Links”

All The Beer News That Matters For The Middle Third Of April

Matters? None of this really matters all that much. Fine. Maybe posts like this are just the stuff you need to get you to – or through – the stuff that matters. Let’s go with that. It’s OK. A quiet week now and then is nice. No need to puff it up with claiming this post … Continue reading “All The Beer News That Matters For The Middle Third Of April”
