To be short, last weekend I stumbled upon beer paradise. Boasting a large selection of beer (and a sign upon entering that says “Warning: This place is known to becoming addicting”), Half Time in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., raised expectations by appearance alone. But boy, did it deliver.
Thirty minutes after entering Half Time, I exited with the $20 St. Bernardus gift pack (its four standards and St. Bernardus-brand snifter!) and a variety six-pack of collected stouts from the aisles. Purchase well made. And purchase spawning a new feature: Nation Sessions.
I’ll present six different beers, all with a common theme, and review them. It’s like six Phillies games at once!
Now, I’m debating whether this should be weekly or every two weeks. I mean, it’s not like I have an endless wallet and liver. So if you have thoughts, let me know.
Also, I will use this space to shamelessly plug Half Time, simply because when I walked inside my jaw dropped. If anyone is in the Poughkeepsie area (and how could you not be?), go there.
