We came, we crawled… five of us were there Friday for the inaugural outing of the Onondaga Brew Crawl, “there” being Seneca Street Brew Pub in Manlius. I had their pale ale, which was all right, and the Erie Canal Amber Waves, which I liked better. (Seneca Street recently bought Erie Canal, so both were technically their beers; they had a number of other breweries’ beers on tap too.)
The tasting room’s small and it takes some doing for a group of more than two to sit together and converse. We pulled some small tables together but at the cost of constricting traffic flow somewhat. It was fairly quiet when we got there around 7 pm, crowded and noisy by the time we left around 8:30.
