Here’s an excerpt from my ctnow.com shout out to ICM501….
BAR is housed in a sprawling brick building that’s part brewery, part brick oven pizzeria and part dance club. The popular gathering spot attracts a whole gamut of patrons, too – families with young children, Ivy League types and the college-coed-clubbing set. The area BAR reserved for my class – between the dance floor and ‘Bru Room’ and near the Ladies room – emitted a kind of decaying urban underground vibe with dim lighting, concrete walls and exposed duct work.
BAR is known for its tasty thin crust pizza and its microbrews. But I wasn’t in the mood for fermented hops and barley that night. I felt more like apples. A pint of Woodchuck Amber Draft Cider would do. Made by Green Mountain Cidery in Vermont, the drink is reminiscent of apple cider and fresh herbs. It’s lightly-carbonated and lightly-alcoholic with a concentrated apple finish.
As I chatted with my classmates, my pint went down sweet and easy. It was a welcome change of pace… at least until finals.”
