Yeah Mike, Old Fog Horn is a super Barley Wine, especially with you can get it at the brewery! That must've been great. I've had it on tap at a NYC bar that I loved, but just found out that it closed...Brewsky's. I also enjoy it at home from a bottle as well.
Speaking of Brewsky's, their neighbor was another great bar...Burp Castle, which has also closed. Their's was a Belgian theme, and the folks that worked there were dressed as Belgian monks, the music was mellow "monk" music (whatever the hell that is, I just don't know how else to describe it). If someone was looking for a nice variety of Belgian brews, that was the place. Its sad that they're both gone though.
