Thanks to Rett and The Herkimer for the great event.
For me, I’ve only been to The Herkimer a couple times before. First time I didn’t like any of the beers I tried. Second time one wasn’t bad. This trip has turned me around on the place.
The Alt was good but hard to dissect. I couldn’t really put my finger on what it was that I liked about it and even worse I couldn’t figure out what it was that I didn’t like about it. After awhile though, I realized I’d have no problem drinking a few of these. And I did. Thankfully with the magic of this site I can let other people describe the beer. I just can’t seem to do it. I can rate it, though!
Later in the night I met up with some other friends and drank some more. It seemed that all the staff there was recommending the Bock. It is indeed a really good beer there right now. If you head down to the Herkimer, I say try both the Alt and the Bock.
Staff last night was great and handled the large group well. Really friendly. I’ll be back.
