In all seriousness, a lot major alcoholism - street drinking in fact - in my old hoods.
It was pretty depressing.


Street drinking in Brooklyn? In the Rudi and post Rudi era?

Not saying it didn't happen Columbia, but I'm surprised. The NYPD is extremely zealous about enforcing the "open container" laws.

I'm talking about people passed out on the sidewalk or on the steps leading down to the G train....And they weren't homeless people.

Oh, understood.

We've got more than our fair share of "Garden Spots" up here.

I was in my local bottle shop last week and saw this at $9.99 a sixer:

Having lived in full-on Polish neighborhoods in both Chicago and Brooklyn, I can tell you that this stuff tastes like pasteurized urine.

EDIT: I've had a about 10 different Polish beers and they were all pretty lousy.....Not sure what the deal is with that.


I've had it a couple times and it didn't get any better. Will not be trying again.

Just ate at church brew works for lunch....i think a pumpkin brew is in the works over there, as there were some cooked up pumpkins discarded out back, and a bunch of the brewers were hanging out back there.

But, they also had a pumpkin soup today for special, so the pumpkins might have been related to that.

There's Pumking on draft at Wexford Ale House last night. Very tasty, as always. Also had a Boulder Cold Hop on nitro, which was quite good too. IPAs + nitro = awesomeness in general.

ZOMG!

I've never had a beer with a grapefruit finish.
Fantastic.

I bought a sampler 12 pack and this was the last I tried.
Very pleased, because the others were pretty generic.

Hough’s in Greenfield (http://houghspgh.com/)also has Pumking on tap, and they will do growlers of anything. (The online list isn’t up to date, but they had it as of Monday). This place fairly recently renovated to turn itself into a serious beer bar.

Had Pumking for the first time just now. It was pretty good, not sure if pumpkin beers are my thing. And I really don't think i could drink more than a pint or two of it in a year
