Things looking up at McGregor’s

As I mentioned in a previous post, the house beers at MacGregor’s Grill and Tap Room in Rochester are now being brewed by the Southern Tier Brewing Company. I harshed their Cherry Wheat beer and their pale ale. THey were both very diasappointing.

However, the MacGregor’s Milk Stout is lovely. Also brewed by the Southern Tier guys, it’s complex, with a nice vanilla undertone. A very drinkable example of a style we don’t see here very often. It’s also a deal at the house special price. If you live in town, it’s worth a stop.

Also, congratulations are in order to the High Falls Brewery and Brewmaster Dave Schlosser. Their J.W. Dundee’s Pale Bock won the gold medal in the Bock category in this year’s World Beer Cup. Quite a feat, considering that the intrepid team from Rochester was up against some heavyweight German competition. Cheers, guys!
