Wild Game beer dinner at Albany Pump Station (2/26/13 in Albany, NY)

Not even a week since my last beer dinner and it's time for another one already! This was my first beer dinner at the Albany Pump Station (also known as C.H. Evans Ales). They were so happy to have me they sat me at the head table next to the owner and the brewmaster! I have to say this was definitely one of the best, if not THE best beer dinners I've ever been to. Thanks to Ryan and Neil for having me!
