Sobriety Checkpoint: The Diamond
A Diamond in the rough indeed.
This is my new favorite place.
addROC and I have been riding our bicycles over to this spot in good ol' Greenpoint for a few weeks now and it seems that I just can't get enough!
This bar is strictly wine and beer. But, don't write it off.
The beer selection is absolutely divine. With lesser known taps and bottles that are ever changing and soooo delicious.
My new favorite beer is one of their bottled selections: ALBA Scots Pine Ale. It's full bodied, and delicious! And addROC noted that it has the slight aroma and flavor of Twizzlers©!
So different. So good.
Here are some beers that owners Dave and Alex expect to be pouring this season:
Victory Uncle Teddy Bitter
Bluepoint Hoptical Illusion I.P.A.
Defiant Farmhouse Ale
Avery Ellie's Brown
Abbaye des Rocs Triple Imperiale
Ichtegems Grand Cru
Wintercoat Double Hop
Schneider Wiesen Edel Weisse.
If you're looking to hang out in the sun for what good weather we have left, they have a lovely outdoor area equipped with picnic tables.
And inside they've got a pimpin' shuffleboard. In fact, they're having a shuffleboard tournament this coming Sunday, September 30th.
If you're a local, you'd be a fool not to stop by.
If you're not from the area, I think you may find it's worth the trip!
So, from me to you, cheers...maybe I'll see you there!
