Session #128 topic announced: Bottle shops

The SessionHost Jack Perdue has announced the topic for The Session #128 is Bottle Shops: Good, Bad & The Ugly.

I find it vaguely reassuring that Argonaut Wine & Liquor remains an excellent stop in Denver, given that the Great American Beer Festival will be going on when The Session convenes Oct. 6. Like small breweries, small bottle shops catering to a niche crowd that cares little about beer from large breweries available in a nearby gas station have popped up seemingly everywhere. But there still something appealing about a warehouse setting, where there’s little danger of beer becoming too dang precious.

    One of my favourite finds in early NNY explorations over a decade ago was Ommegang’s Hennepin in gas stations. Plenty of good beer can be found thems there at fabulous prices!

      Oh, yes. I remember the Oklahoma gas station where we picked up a 4 pack of 1994 Thomas Hardy Ales for $9.99 in 1999. A friend suggested I should have tried to get it for less because it was old.
