The Cheap Beer Chronicles: Part IV-Genesee

Sometimes pouring 99-cent beer into a glass makes me think I'm fancier than I actually am.

Sometimes pouring 99-cent beer into a glass makes me think I’m fancier than I actually am.

Sometimes I don’t want to spend more than a dollar on a beer.

For $0.99, plus tax and deposit, I picked up a tall red and white can of Genesee beer. Genny makes a few different beers, like the cream (ehh…), 12 Horse Ale (actually quite good. A full review coming) and ice (oh god, why). There’s no Frost Brew…

The Cheap Beer Chronicles: Part III-Stewart’s Mountain Brew

Ice on the left, light on the right.

I speak of course of Mountain Brew Ice and its new partner, Mountain Brew Light. In the merging market of convenience store-brand…

Stewart’s pizza: Because man cannot live on Deli Dog alone

Simply adorned on a white paper plate.

Simply adorned on a white paper plate.

Withh the noon sun high in the sky, basking down upon the cars zooming through the busy intersection, I descended upon the white storefront, artfully paired with maroon accents, in search of fine cuisine in an unassuming locale.

OK, so it was Stewart’s gas station on the corner of North Massey and Coffeen streets in Watertown and the pizza was 99-cents and…

Carmelized Iced Tea

By simply adding the sugar at the beginning of your batch of iced tea instead of a late afterthought, the end product is richer, with an intriguing depth of flavor you don’t often find in your typical summer brew.

I should clarify now that while I may refer to it as a summer brew, I make iced tea year-round. Sometimes it’s herbal tea, other times it may be green. During the summer, it’s usually…

WDT: Gram’s in Adams: a diner with a difference

WDT: Gram’s in Adams: a diner with a difference

A slice of the peanut butter pie I brought home. If the mac and cheese and fancy brunch doesn't do it for you, the pie will.

A slice of the peanut butter pie I brought home. If the mac and cheese and fancy brunch doesn’t do it for you, the pie will.

For my last full-length contribution for the WDT, I made the trek down I-81 to Adams for lunch one of my last Friday afternoons in Watertown. Adams, a small village about 40 minutes north of Syracuse and 15 minutes south of Watertown, is just the kind of place that would…
