After getting a real education my taste preferences have really centered on the IPA’s and ESB’s. It was disappointing when Bridgeport (6+ months ago) and now Avery IPA left your menu. I was also disappointed to hear Widmer teamed up with the Bud guys but really love their IPA. I compared the Widmer IPA side by side to Avery IPA and couldn’t tell the difference. The Stone IPA and 471 are favorites but more IPA selection would be great.
Reply: Our new menu is coming out soon. I had plans to limit the number of IPA’s since we have so many: We have Avery Cask IPA, which is VERY tasty, Dogfish 90, Breckenridge 471 IPA which will be moving to ESB soon, Live Oak Liberation, Red Hook Ballard Bitter, St Arnold Elissa and Stone. We may pick up Hop Wallup by Victory Brewing company, I hear they misshipped a palate to our distributor.
I disagree with your comparison of Avery to Widmer – Avery is far better in my humble opinion. Widmer’s teaming up with the bud guys is purely for proper distribution.
