PUB REVIEW: Bier Abbey

The husband and I came to the Bier Abbey in Schenectady, NY to get some 120 Minute from Dogfish Head on tap.  We only stepped inside briefly and then returned outside to sit on the patio since it was a nice evening.  The inside looked a little small, but then again, that could just be the bit I saw.  We were waiting on my brother-in-law and the server was extremely patient while we waited.  We ordered some fries to keep us from starving during the wait and boy were they good.  You get to pick which sauces you want.  Awesome.

After a while my brother-in-law texted us and let us know he wouldn't be able to make it after all.  We proceeded to order some dinner.  The husband had a burger which he very much enjoyed.  I went with the chicken strips.  OMG, they may be the best "grown-up" chicken strips I've ever had.  The breading was just delightful.  The chicken was real meat, not overly processed crap.  The food was great and reasonably priced.

After dinner we treated ourselves to some dessert - chocolate cake with ice cream.  It was delicious.  We fought over it.  And had we not been sitting outside with people around, I think we would have literally licked the plate clean.  

Oh, and the real reason you care - they have a great beer selection.  They keep their facebook pretty up to date with what's on tap for the day and it's always a nice variety.  We didn't ask a lot of questions, but the table next to us had a million about the beers and the staff seemed quite knowledgeable.  Definitely a place to check out.
