Crossing the border for a few days always brings with it the opportunity to buy an insane amount of beer with which to stock the stash. The stash is not exactly sad but it is not exactly bursting at the seams, either. It deserves better.
It's been almost a year and a half since I hit the wonder that is Finger Lake Beverages and I am wondering what you would recommend. They have a great selection of Belgians, Germans and British imports as well as a whack of US craft beers but it's those special releases that are going around I will focus on. What has been good recently? What is worth passing up? We also should be stopping at Ommegang and maybe even a few craft beer joints along the way - but this is a family jaunt so it's not like I'm dragging my butt through the taverns until the wee hours. No, between stops for ice cream, baseball games and swimming holes this is about stuffing the stash. So, what does it need to be stuffed with?
And think of me as I weep before the beer section at Wegmans... again.
