Your Gameday Beer: Tim here – Full disclosure: I host trivia night at the Newbugh Brewing Company (Newburgh, NY) every few weeks (and am hosting this Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.!), so I’m a big fan of this brewery. But Newburgh’s Brown Ale is terrific, the perfect hang-out beer, very sessionable and with just enough nutty taste to invoke the best of the British style. Have a hot dog or two, sit back, and watch the Phils attempt to take a series from the Mets. Go Phils!
