I'm currently drinking a Red Hook ESB ale. It's kind of thick and fruity. Discuss.
Didn't realize that Red Hook had made it out there to the East Coast. The Red Hook brewery that argystokes mentioned is about 10 miles outside of Seattle. It's sited near a slough that has a bike trail that's very popular on the weekends. The bicyclists riding north toward the brewery ride in much straighter lines than those riding south away from it...
Red Hook was partially bought by Anheuser-Busch. That happened roundabouts the time I started drinking beer, so I'm not sure if the quality suffered (though I'm told it didn't).
Having had Red Hook both pre- and post-acquisition by Anheuser Busch, I can report that quality did not suffer. I just hadn't recalled seeing it in any stores off of the West Coast...
