Buzzing neighbourhood bar in the vicinity of Rutland VT. Bottle of Long Trail Ale (http://www.longtrail.com/) please (chewy, biscuity crispness and dry finish, has that crisp character of an Alt, on which it was modelled, though my favourite has to be Uerige (http://www.uerige.de/start/) with its slight but still discernable floral nose). I handed back the emptied glass that had held Switchback . It's taken but no glass is proffered. I'm left with a bottle, offered the same sort of choice as Bud Light swillers are offered. I'm tempted to say 'can I have a glass'then stop. Surely the fact I am offered a bottle of a craft beer and meant to drink it like any other beer means that craft beer has hit the mainstream over here, and is regarded on a parity with BL? I think that's a good thing, I was there for the beer and enjoyed it, but I didn't want to make notes. I don't always want to suck on a bottle but this time it felt right. Would you drink a bottle of Jaipur or Sierra Nevada Torpedo or even ReAle from the bottle?https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/3076725205410370436-4139634745233899862?l=maltworms.blogspot.com
