Leaf Restaurant Cigar Bar & Lounge... I Can't Be Leaf It

Leaf Restaurant

Oh man! This place is really out of place..... and thank god it is... If you like good food, Cigars, and Beer you'll love Leaf Restaurant Cigar Bar& Lounge: Located in and industrial park and connected to "The World Famous Smoke Shop" Leaf has got to be one of the best places for a relaxing night out in the  Valley. If your lucky you'll be there when "Tommy D" and the boys roll in for an impromptu piano sing-a-long. "Try to stump 'em I dare you!  -Shorty    P.S. Lots-o-beer to talk about when I find the time.

I Can't Be Leaf it's Not Butter! Spray!

Whats Tappenin'!

So the tap system is up and rockin' and Last Wednesday I paid a visit to Stockertown Beverage (Stockertown, Pa) to peruse their fine selection brews.  A little back story here: I usually walk out of this distributor without purchasing anything due to their lack of customer service and general arrogance when it comes to selling beer. Yet, I found myself at their mercy once again. This visit however would prove to be very different. The norm would have been a banter back and forth "well what do you want?.." "I dunno what you got?" and on and on and on.... this time though I met a kind fellow by the name of Cody.... who quickly walked me through the coolers pointing out various beers that I might like, describing them as we went and quoting me prices no less.... as it turns out.... this place has or can get EVERYTHING you could ever want! On that particular day they had over seven IPA's in 1/6 barrels! Including a few double IPA's. At Cody's direction I finally decided on Summit Brewing's Silver Anniversary Ale. A 1/6 barrel for 59$. Let's just say that this beer is good! over 80 IBU's and an ABV of 6.5% make this a very drinkable beer. More in depth review to follow! -The Beer Gnome

Loved this show! the 70's were the Sh-t!

Full Sail Brewing: Elevation Imperial IPA..... "I'm Out!"

 Ok... so I popped the top on this attractively packaged Imperial IPA expecting to be over whelmed by hoppy goodness.... and lets just say I was less than pleased.... I think If I were going to quote myself... I would have to write "Not shitty; just not good!" This beer just fell flat on it's face.... From start to finish there was nothing that struck a tone with me. See the hand written review for a more in depth account of our tasting.  The video below illustrates my feelings quit accurately. I love when that patty smacks that dude in the face.. pure genius! -The Beer Gnome
