Bad Beer News
It's sad news that the great Madison Avenue beer mecca Mahar's is apparently being shut down. The diverse selection and the unique "beer tour" (in which an ancient computer kept track of what beers you've tried and offered a discount for regulars) made it a regional treasure. BMT, who's taking over the space, does have some history of success -- I love Cafe Madison and like The Point -- and hopefully they'll recognize the magnitude of what they have to live up to. Most of all, I hope Mahar's will find another Albany location.
