I didn't have a tonne of time to track down beers but I did find Flower Power and it was very good. Nice and bitter and hoppy. Excellent and thanks for the recommendation.
So why can't you buy beer and liquor in the same store in NY? You guys have some seriously screwed up laws.
I saw a few Ommegang beers but I wasn't ready to buy 1.5 L bottles. I should have gotten some but I'm very cheap.
