Hello, World. Did you know a Youngstown area retailer/pub is rated the best beer store in the world? I didn’t until today, when my friend Peter Oresick sent me this link to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s article about Vintage Estates, which is just over the border of Youngstown in Boardman, one of the suburbs. I certainly knew that it was one of the best places I’ve been to, but didn’t realize it was top in the world. It’s a cool place: carryout store on one side, with every beer and wine imaginable, along with other kinds of alcohol like mead and various blends of sake. The other half is a tasting pub, with some of the best pizzas I’ve ever eaten.
So, out of town friends, if you’re around these parts in the future, hit me up. I’ll take you for a visit. It’s definitely worth it.
