    Keg tree: A fine example of upstate awesomeness.

    And kudos to Genesee Brewing for almost single handedly keeping Cream Ale beer alive and well for the past 50+ years.

    A few from my collection. I bring home a bunch of sauces every time I visit Erie and go to Wegman's.


    If you never had Country Sweet fresh, you missed out. I hear they still have one store at the University, but I think it just tasted better in the ghetto.

    You've made some fine choices there my friend.

    There's one Country Sweet restaurant still open on Mt Hope Ave near the UofR. The crown jewel used to be on Monroe ave and Friday night, post-party trips there at 2AM were something to behold. ROC's finest. Wings as big as your head, extra hair at no additional charge. And the flavor! The sweet and tangy bliss was a perfect match for the sound of the pimp shaking down his ho in the corner.

    Eat well.

    Most certainly broke college students looking for cheap beer are largely responsible for this run?

    Yup, that's the one. Something about fearing for your life really makes the flavor pop.
    Ha ha- the hair- I forgot about how hairy those wings were.

    I make them at home with the sauce- have 6 bottles of hot and 3 mild. It just isn't the same.

    Slap a Teton Gravity sticker on that and that could become the official truck of the ECRC.

    I'm assuming Matt's beer has gone the way of the dodo?

    That wouldn't be the only thing, but some of them are pretty old and can't chew solid food. I'm also thinking having Benny sign Magic Mtn t-shirts and a "throw a snowball at Butters for charity" station.

    I have no proof, but I'd bet one of Saranac's current pilsners or lagers is Matts

    Would this be a supplemental vehicle for Magic?

    I'm sure the ECRC would jump, or at least slowly move towards, the opportunity to toss a snowball at Butters, so long as they don't tear their labrum doing it.

    If they bring back the beer ball we'll know which one it is
