Rattle, hum, hic

Mary Jo suggested the Rattle n Hum (14 E 33rd St) and after a nice afternoon hanging out with old friend and NY transplant Simon P and his dog Oscar (Old John is a nice place for brunch near West End) we tried it out for a drink. With the warning that the small nachos does 2 people for dinner, on to the beers.

We tried three different Captain Lawrence Ales: the Freshchester is maybe over-bitter, the old gold is nice, the trippel Xtra is very nice. The Thomas Hooker Noreaster is like Ibarra made into beer: cinnamon, cacao, even a touch of cornflour hardness. The Smuttynose Big A IPA is big, rich for an IPA, like a trippel. The Middle Ages Duke of Worship is a spicy dark ale and the Stone Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout has that dusty oatmeal hardness in a rich dark brew.
