Quack It Under Your Hat

Update New York and Vermont

WesTrek '99

October 1999

After escaping the grit of the New York City area, the duo of Dave and NOT made a run north upstate. They found themselves all bottled up in Ballsten, home of the National Bottle Museum.

I'd Rather Have a Bottle In Front of Me...

Stretching down from Canada like a finger between New York and Vermont lies Lake Champlain. The lake is the supposed home of a  serpent, Champ, which is a relative to Scotland's Nessie. NOT and Dave reported no sightings of any monsters, just a disappointing lack of Champagne in Champlain.

Watching the Boats Pass By

After all that water, NOT and Dave sure worked up an appetite. So after crossing the lake, what is a thirsty pair to do, but stop by the Magic Hat brewery in, VT. Despite all the pumpkins around, Magic Hat doesn't make a Pumpkin ale.

Brewing Up Things

All bottled Up - Including 2 Necks.
