It's not enough to have a fancy wine list anymore
Picture this: You're at a fancy downtown steakhouse. One of those chain joints.
The waiter brings you the drink list, and on it, you see tons of wine, tons of scotch and tons of post-dinner liqueurs. Lovely stuff.
But what if you want a beer? What if you want a good beer? And not just some standard like Heinekin or even Sierra Nevada.
Chances are, the fancy downtown steakhouse is not going to have a big beer list.
And that, gang, is not acceptable ...
When I toured Clipper City's brewery, our guide said this is the "golden age of craft breweries."
So shouldn't you be able to choose from a big wine list AND and big beer list at fancy steakhouses? I want to see local options as well as national favorites.
I'll bet more and more guys my age would want a hoppy IPA or a robust stout with our fancy steaks.
Something, dear readers, needs to be done. And quick.
