The idiot Governor that got in due to the previous sex scandal, I forget his name. He was pissed that people on the borders of the state would bring their bottles into NY and get the 5 cent deposit back even though the bottles were purchased out of state. They passed a law (for all of 24 hours or something like that) that said bottled water needed to have its own bar code so that the machines could read it and give the deposit back, but only to the ones bought in NY. Whatever regulation governs bottle water also governed beer and its containers, meaning any beer sold in NY would also needs its own barcode. AB let them know they would not make a separate bottling line just for NY and would be pulling all Bud products immediately. The law was quickly over turned.

Patterson.

I'm surprised I never heard a hint of that. Must have been really fast for me to have missed it. I pour over news like there's no tomorrow.

NY is a great sleeper state when it comes to craft beer. I've been to almost 30 breweries in my state and am constantly researching road trips to visit more. My favorite overall brewpub I have ever been to is actually in NY - Brown's in Troy. And I am no "regional" ra-ra boy, so when I say they are my favorite, I really mean it objectively.

Browns is great. Check out the Pump Station in Albany. Fantastic brew pub owned by C.H. Evans Brewing company. Try the Kick-Ass Brown Ale and the Pump Station Pale.

I miss living in Albany. Next time you're up there, check out Mahar's on the corner of Madison and North Allen. They have 30-40 beers on tap at any given time, 100 or so in bottles, and consistently have 5 or 6 cask beers available. You get a number the first time you go, and you print out the beer list. At the end of the night, you turn in the list with all the beers you tried checked off. Next time you go, the list you print out won't have beers you tried already, so you have to try something new.
