Galaxy Brewing Galactic Harvest - We were downtown for a late lunch on Saturday (Lost Dog of course) and decided to stop in at Galaxy for a growler fill. This beer is made with lots of locally harvested hops in the brew kettle and even more fresh / wet hops in a hopback. Pale ale level hopiness. A nice beer. I think this is the way to go - enjoy Galaxy’s beers without having to put up with the spotty food and service.
Southern Tier Pumking - I’ve grown out of a lot of Southern Tier’s imperial series (looking at you Chocolat), but this remains a nice fall treat. Always good for at least one bottle - tempted to pick up a couple more this year.
St. Lawrence Maple Porter - My family camps on the St. Lawrence river every summer so I felt obligated to try this. I had pretty low expectations based on the BeerAdvocate ratings, but thought this was pretty good.
