16. Post an old picture of me online once a month for a year (1/12)
When I was in New York City over the holidays, I found myself in Heartland Brewery, which sits at the base of the Empire State Building. I was pleasantly surprised to see a good selection of in-house beers. This gave me an opportunity to start with my first entry into item number 59 on my list. I decided to try the Red Rooster Ale. I have always been a fan of reds and based on the other choices, this was the one for me. It was a good red. Certainly not the best I've ever had, but I was impressed. I've never really thought of New York City as a place to find breweries, but this was a fine establishment. I would recommend a stop here to anyone going to the Empire State Building. There was a decent selection of in-house beers, as well as a full food menu. The two stories with bars and seating both upstairs and downstairs allows for plenty of space.
