Monday was fantastic!! It was sunny and empty (because everyone had cleared out the day before due to the rain). We slept in late to let the rock dry out a little more, and then we had an awesome day climbing! We got on some really classic routes! We were using Jack’s 70 meter rope so we were able to string 2 pitches together for a few climbs and move a little faster.
When we were picking dinner options I knew there was only one place I wanted to go….Bacchus!!
Jack was really trying to pick and try New York beers on this trip so he got started with the Cooperstown Benchwarmer Porter.
I took a couple sips, it was pretty good, but it had moderate carbonation. Couldnt much taste the alcohol, which was good considering it was 6.3%. A drinkable, English style porter.
I got the Wolaver’s Oatmeal Stout (hey Liz, its from Vermont!!!)
This was a very good beer! Very creamy, smooth and chocolaty. I was in heaven!
I got the bacon wrapped scallops for dinner, and for desert I decided to have one more of the Keegan Mother’s Milk Stout, because I have a feeling it might be kinda hard to track down in DC.
That about sums it up for the Gunks and New Paltz. Cant wait to go back!
ps- Today I hit up Total Wine, they did not have the Southern Tier Creme Brulee Stout. What am I going to do?!?
