|Jay visits McSorley's Old Ale House in New York City's East Village|
It actually turns out that at the current stage, McSorley's beer is brewed by the Pabst Brewing Company and is available at places other than McSorley's Old Ale House. The dark beer is actually a dark lager, pouring nearly black in color with a tan, creamy head. The toasted malts are present and overall the beer is fairly mild and pleasant to drink. The light beer was nothing special but I still enjoyed going back an forth with Adam for a couple rounds. McSorley's is a bit of a tourist trap but there are definitely plenty of locals that frequent the place as well. They serve up some bar food but I didn't order any. Apparently they get crowded and attract a college age clientele at night. All in all, I'd definitely go back when doing another NYC pub crawl. That atmosphere really captured my spirit and I could imagine sitting in there for hours just drinking beer and having actual conversation. That's my kind of bar for sure!
