    steak, scallops, green beans, and garlic mashed potatoes for me tonight, i'd say that's the perfect football food.

    Horseheads has a brewery now? I have had the some the Ithaca Brewery beers when I am up in Horseheads but never knew about Brickyard. Is it worth trying?

    Did you know the Brooklyn Brewery beer is made in Utica (pretty far from NYC).

    I drove by Cooperstown on my MTB tour this summer and forgot about the Ommegang Brewery - really pissed about that :rant:

    Beeradvocate gives Harpoon IPA a "B" rating. :plthumbsdown: Personally, I like it better than the higher scoring Dogfish 60 and 90, and the one with the dude climbing rocks on the label.

    Pulled pork sandwich with some sharp cheddar is good stuff. I did a big ride then grilled some burgers for the late game.

    narlus - what'd you think of the Brickyard? Did you try the stout yet?

    syadasti - The Horseheads Brewery is relatively new and located on Old Ithaca Road, near the UPS building if you know where that is. It's a mom & pop operation selling 22oz bottles and growlers. I like the Newtown Brown quite a bit but they were out when I was in last. They were also in the process of brewing up something new when I was in last so it's time to make another visit.

    Harpoon IPA is arguably my favorite IPA. How anyone could rate it a B is beyond me.

    the brickyard was excellent. i rarely buy red ales, but that was a winner. the stout was good too. i shared that w/ my old college roommate who was up last week.

    Please tell me your Q was cooked with smoke & indirect heat for the better part of a day. I haven't had any good Q since leaving the South & the stuff in this part of the country ain't Q no matter what they call it.

    it's a bit gay to call it 'Q', no?

    crockpot+liquid smoke = win
