PLATTSBURGH, NEW YORK
Open since ’97, Canadian-bordered BOOTLEGGERS BREWPUB sat atop a huge game room on the second floor of a connected hotel visited 2004, then closed down in 2006. Upon entering, hand-carved wood bar area and brew tanks are to the right while convenient TV screens adorn the Southwestern styled dining area. Design pizzas, burgers, and appetizers are served in contemporary ‘old world’ atmosphere, with antique registers, music boxes, phones, and memorabilia strewn about. Hop-embittered corn-sugared wheat-sweetened Easy Blond Ale, soapy wheat-honeyed Canada Goose Pale Ale, unassumingly diacetyl Cardinal Red Ale, buttery walnut Three Nut Brown Ale, and dryly solvent-like berry-soured Adirondack Blueberry Ale were casually light-bodied but somewhat tepid.
