Best brewfest ever

I just returned from the annual State College Brewfest. Damn. This might be the best fest I've ever attended. I've been to the Stoudt's festival several times, and it is always great. But the quality of beers this year at the State College festival is unsurpassed. Discovery of the evening was the Ommegang Brewery which specializes in Begian Ales. Oh my god. Their Three Philosophers Ale was to die for, and their Rare Vos not far behind. Another delightful surprise was Weyerbacher's Prophecy Ale. What a find. All I have to do now is figure out where I can get these great beers.

What, they don't have them at the Gaff?

Ah, so you've been to Happy Valley.

I don't know what they serve at the Shandygaff these days--I haven't been there since I was a student. You're more likely to find beers like these at Zeno's.

At any rate, I was talking about buying by the case rather than the glass. Looks like a road trip to Cooperstown is in order.

I was being sarcastic; last time I was in the Gaff I ended up ordering two pitchers of Yuengling, with no glasses, so it was that kind of night. And that was the best beer they had.

OK. That squares with my memories of the Gaff from college.
