Supporting Your Local Brewery

Tried a can of Dog Bite High Gravity Lager last week. Never again! Localism only goes so far. This horrendous "high alcohol malt liquor product" is made by Rock Wall Brewing Co., a subsidiary of the Genesee Brewing Company. Another subsidiary, the Dundee Brewing Company (sorry, no girly pic), is at the other end of the spectrum, producing craft beers.

The old standby, Genesee Cream Ale, which my grandmother enjoyed but none of us kids would drink unless we had to, and my new favorite, the "aggressively hopped ale with primary flavor characteristics of floral and citrus bitterness" Dundee India Pale Ale, are my two beers of choice.

Indeed. I had my first Brooklyn Brewery product last week at the Carolina Chocolate Drops show in town. Great stuff.

Southern Tier, Saranac and Ommegang are some more good upstate NY breweries. And you should go to the Tap and Mallet in the South Wedge of Rochester (my neighborhood!). They have an always-changing selection of 20 or 30 beers on tap.
