Establishment: C.H. Evans Brewing - The Albany Pump Station, Albany, NY

My wife and I stopped for a quick snack and beer before dropping me off at the airport for a work trip. I had the kick-ass brown. My wife the Stout. The Brown's a Gold Medal winner and deservedly so. I never tire of this one no matter how often I have it. It's always clean and crisp with the right amount of bitter/burnt and hoppy balance. A wonderful beer! My wife's stout was also very good. It seemed balanced the right way with malt vs. hops and the initial nose was perfect. However, after the brown, I had trouble with the hops flavor in the Stout due to the saturation level from the brown so I can't tell you if the taste balance was truely there.

We had the small nacho platter. It's more than enough for two!!!

Establishment: Brown's Brewing Company was Troy Pub and Brewery, Troy, NY

I usually come here after eating wings at the Ale House so my taste buds are somewhat compromised. Additionally, the "snob tap" at the ale house usually has an exceptional, seasonal brew.

Most recent visit was with my wife. Food was OK but the homemade potato chips rocked! Service was OK. I and a friend were once asked to give up our table because we'd paid already and had then tried to order another round. They were busy and certainly needed the table. However, there's a MUCH better way to do this than the rudeness we were shown. (Note: Went to the Rolls Touring Co for that later beer.)

Notice the beer doesn't come first in this review. Mostly because it's not spectacular. I had the barley wine, too sweet for my taste. My wife had the Irish Stout. It's a nice beer but not exceptional to the style. (But, when you're a Guinness fan, it's hard to compete with the nectar of the gods.)

Finally, the resaurant itself is a great place. The deck in the summertime overlooking the Hudson (you can watch the sunset!) is great but be careful while eating dinner because you could be blinded. There's also a time limit on deck seating on weekends due to popularity.

I'll definitely go back because I enjoy the atmosphere and the beer is good. Their pale ale and brown are usually decent while their seasonal Pumpkin is excellent - if you don't mind the strongish pumpkin flavor.

Sorry to prattle on. I'll stop now!
