Good-bye Ruby Tuesday

Hubby and I went out to dinner with a group of friends.  For a number of reasons, the organizer of the the gathering chose Ruby Tuesday's, a chain of moderately priced restaurants specializing in casual dining.  They can fairly easily accommodate large parties.

When I go to a chain restaurant like that, I don't really expect too much for a beer selection.

So, imagine my excitement when I opened the menu and spied in great big letters Handcrafted Bottles. I was already drooling for a sharp, bitey IPA.

Then envision my disappointment when I discovered that the only one beer on the list could be considered a craft beer. With the exception of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, the best I can ascertain was that the bottles themselves were hand crafted.

There was no craft beer on the the draft list but they had some specials.  I ended up with a Samuel Adams Summer Ale, which is fine but not really craft beer, in my ever so humble opinion.  It wasn't until after I had two 20 ouncers of Sam Adams that the server informed us that they had Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA on tap.
