Awesome! Great N/A N/A N/A

Establishment: Coopers Cave Ale Company Limited, Glens Falls, NY

Super nice people. The small size of their operation dwarfed their large heart and soul.Felt like all their best was going into each batch of beer made, and their results did not prove me wrong.Great, great tasting beer.Friendly too.Do stop by whether on the bike trail or motoring near Glens Falls, you won't regret it.

Establishment: Saranac / F.X. Matt Brewing Company, Utica, NY

The tour was the idea I had and was not let down.A first rate tour and guide showed a rather complete tour of operations there.It ended with two 12 ouncers of your choice.Octoberfest was tried,but it was a poor representation.The White Beer was also sampled,which wasn't too bad . Mainly Saranac beers seem designed to fit mainstream drinkers,therefore not too strong for average consumer.Better if you drink Saranac not expecting much,and you won't be let down.Surprised though at the amount of variety.

Establishment: Tahquamenon Falls Brewery and Pub, Paradise, MI

After seeing upper/lower falls stopped for lunch at 11:30 on Sunday.Wrong,Wrong,Wrong. No beer 'til 12:00P.M.,but worse yet was the restaurant area.It was a blue sky,sunny cloudless day in the statepark and the seating in the restaurant contained two measly windows on 1 wall which looked out 15' into the brush.Worse closed-in atmosphere I've ever seen in such a wonderful scenic statepark area.Did not utilize the environment whatsoever.

Had to stop for one while in town. Asked the bartender(?) for something hoppy,didn't know what I meant.After reading descrips of their beers,ordered ther pale ale. It was nicely Cascade hopped and commented to the bartender about hoppiness,which her reply was,"Thats my favorite beer."Why do so many establishments staff such unknowledgeable people and then not demand a basic course in the beer they are selling? A nice place downtown,with much history,but didn't sample enough to rate more.

Stopped by on a Friday afternoon at 4:30 and had a Golden Wheat and their Pale Ale. Both were very good beers.They had probably 7-8 beers total, but was unable to return and try others.Thumbs up,will stop again.

Well pleased to have stopped here on a Friday afternoon,referred by Michigan Beer Guide.Had a special bitter which was thirst quenching ,average to above.Then a Dunkel Hefeweizen which was above average and closed with their vanilla brown porter,which seemed to lack vanilla.The beers are tasty and won't let you down, I will stop again when I'm around agian.

Coffee porter was excellent, as was their IPA. Also was able to get a small sampler served by an ex-brewer,now waiting tables who was accomodating.Surprisingly slow on a Saturday at noontime,but I would go again

Establishment: Big Buck Brewery and Steakhouse, Gaylord, MI

A Saturday at 6:00 is not the time to go.With the parking lot 1/2 full, there was 1 1/4 hr wait to be seated.Took refuge at the bar for a beer,but was mis-directed to the patio where drinks and appetizers were supposed to be served. Be wary of mis-informed waiters,there was only drinks served in the patio.Am becoming very distrustful of unknowledgeable waiters.Have been here before though with good results,but this place has the 'draw'and is into 4th and 5th establishments,so beware.

Surprised and delighted by this visit. Sampler was regularly 6, I got all 9 on tap. Good overall variety of beers that being low-hopped are non-offensive to non-connoisseurs. Very attractively priced, also $1 pints at happy hour.
