Out of the Mouths of Others, Part 4: Ladder 15
Don't know these guys, haven't myself yet been there. Have heard mixed reactions that I will need to check against my own reactions. However, this was Mrs. Brew Lounge's experience from this past weekend at the relatively new Ladder 15 just a few doors down from Nodding Head. Think you'd ever hear this at Nodding Head? If Ladder 15 is truly interested in supporting and promoting the craft beer scene, I'll hope that this sort of scene is not played out too often at their bar. Mrs. TBL: Could I have a Flying Fish please? The abbey dubbel. [Bartender sets glass bottle on the bar; walks away; returns with others drinks] [Mrs. TBL gives a tilt of the head and a curious look as bartender notices she hasn't yet drunk from the bottle] Bartender: Oh, did you want a glass for that? Later in the session...Something you don't expect to hear too often: Mrs. TBL: Could I have a Sly Fox please? Bartender: Sorry, we replaced Sly Fox with Budweiser.
