Anybody been to Moe's tavern in lee, MA ??? Dig the website  - nocoorslite.com
Gotta love the website! Maybe try to find it if I end up skiing at Jiminy Peak this winter (altho I don't know why I'd do that when I spend the winter in North Conway!)
A funny story; about 2 years ago I was in a pub in NoCo (I'll leave it un-named for reasons which will become evident) and ordered a Guinness, which they usually serve very well. About 10 minutes later, the waitress returned and apologized, saying that the Guinness keg was empty and they wouldn't get a delivery until the next day (it was just after a big holiday weekend). I then asked what else she had on tap and she started -" Coors Lite, Bud Lite, Miller Lite, Miller, Bud, Sam Adams, Smithwicks, Newcastle Brown ale," where upon I chose a Smithwicks and then asked her if I could give her some advice. She said yes, so I said "if you ever have to tell a Guinness customer again that the keg is dead, you can save your breath and not even mention the Lite beers you have on tap." She smiled and said " I know, my boyfriend would have told me the same thing" ;D

Last week I spent a couple days in Burlington, VT. What a great food/beer scene!

In Montpelier we hit NECI on Main, and The Three Penny Taproom. Both had great selections and VERY knowledgeable staff.

In the downtown Burlington area there are dozens of great restaurants but we loved the beer at American Flatbread, The Vermont Pub & Brewery (just not the food), and The Farmhouse Tap & Grill (a MUST visit place)

Holy cow.  Talk about an extensive menu!

I have relatives in Montpelier and we like to eat and drink at NECI when we get a chance.  Quite a surprise my first visit there years ago.

Burlington is hands down the best city/place to live on the east coast. Had you never been before? If i could i move there in a minute!

if I were going to live anywhere other than North Conway in the Northeast, it would be Burlington. a great town, with a great music scene, good food and close to nice rock and ice climbing.

I hadn't been there before... it is awesome... though I love Portland, ME as well... Didn't get to sample any climbing in the Burlington area... what's the closest good stuff?

I've often thought summers in Bar Harbor and winters in N. Co. would be a hard life to beat...

xcrag_corex, you're not too far away, but if you want to move somewhere bad enough you will...

I have been to both Burlington and Portland, ME a number of times and I think I prefer Portland.
Yeah, being able to spend summers in BH would be wonderful.  I really like that part of ME (too bad Ellsworth has gotten so built-up though).  I have a friend who is living that good life in retirement.  I am jealous.

bar harbor is pretty nice. the town gets busy as hell for two months but the rocks are only crowded on the long weekends. hell, we got out last monday when it was 50 and there wasn't anybody else on the precipice.  :-[

and, i hear there is good beer in bar harbor.  :)

All true... but the crowds flock to the over-hyped Otter Cliffs... I have yet to run into any serious traffic at the Precipice... got to be a holiday weekend to have an issue at that place... then again I always go after Columbus Day...

The stuff at Great Head is pretty cool too and never a crowd. I've only TRed the lines on the left but they are fun! 7 and 8 I believe. You get the sea cliff setting w/o the Otter Cliff crowd.

Had Mayflower Thanksgiving Ale today for the first time.  Tasty, I like it, even though not an IPA (or at least I do not think it is).  Not inexpensive and I only found it sold in 22 oz bottles.  I am going to pick up a "six pack" for the winter.
