Establishment: Ale House 'The Beer Joint of Your Dreams', Vestal, NY

Those reviewers who have expressed their displeasure with the owner's attitude couldn't be more right. And it's not just Tim, but his wife, too. They seem to take for granted that they are largely a one-of-a-kind experience in the Binghamton area. While they have 36 taps, at least a third (and usually more at certain times) are always dry. The service is often ridiculously slow, but that's only because the owner insists on having only one bartender wait on 30 people. Other annoyances: they won't serve pizza until 6 pm, the bar is closed on Sundays and only opens up at 6pm on Saturdays, and their pint prices aren't visibly displayed.

Should a rival "beer joint" that can couple solid customer service with a savvy beer sense appear, it could easily shut this place down. My advice: wait until that place comes to the Binghamton area or go to Ithaca for a real beer experience. As for you travelers: go to Sam the Beer Man in Binghamton, pick up a 6-pack of good micro-brew (a much wider selection than the Ale House), and stay in your room.
