One thought on “Two Goats Brewing's 2 Goats Brewing Floggen Schloggen”

  1. Bhavna and I have always wanted to ride in a balloon but with young kids and work, we never made the time for it. The kids are older now. Shaan is out of the house and a sophomore at Rutgers University. Kiran is a senior in high school and busy with AP classes and college applications. My health has been failing lately and I am feeling more fragile.When the QuickChek Festival of Ballooning came around I suggested to Bhavna that we should take a ride. But the festival weekend conflicted with another event on the calendar. Seeing my disappointment Bhavna suggested that I search for other ballooning options.I found a few options in the area but Bhavna thought they were too expensive. She suggested that if we were going to spend that kind of money that we should have a great balloon experience. Searching Google for “best balloon rides in the USA“ I found a link to a Fodors ranking of balloon rides and a similar Fox News article. The nearest one was Balloons over Letchworth. That’s the one I chose.I booked the balloon ride for the only date remaining for the season. Balloons over Letchworth launches at 5:15 PM from inside the Letchworth State Park and the balloon ride can last about an hour. We were driving just over five hours for the balloon ride so Bhavna and I decided to make a weekend of it. We decided to stay in Watkins Glenn.

I found accommodation at the Farmhouse at Grist Iron, which has an onsite microbrewery, The Grist Iron Brewing Company. We booked for two nights.The original plan was to drive directly to the launch site on Friday, then drive back to the Inn, and unpack before heading to the brewery for a night-cap. Thursday night, the balloon pilot called to say that the Friday night flight was scrapped. The weather was not conducive to a balloon launch. A storm was expected. He had a cancellation for Saturday and was able to accommodate us. This was even better than our original plan.Friday after breakfast we packed the car and drove straight to the Inn at Grist Iron.The FarmhouseWhen we arrived at the Inn the innkeeper, Darlene, a friendly and bright-eyed woman, greeted us, pointed out the location of the Farmhouse, explained the dining options are the brewery and the surrounding area and made some suggested of other breweries to visit.

    Our fully restored 1860s farmhouse features wide plank floors, original hand-hewn beams, and various shades of chestnut, pine, and oak for guests looking for the traditional warmth and feel of a bed and breakfast. The house features a large shared dining area, small parlour, kitchen with a vaulted wood ceiling, and French doors that lead out to our covered front porch with ample seating and magnificent lake views. With four charming rooms to choose from – each with their own private bath – guests can enjoy antique furnishings, cosy reading areas, and the comfort of years gone by.

    The Sunset Room in the Farmhouse at the Inn at Grist Iron—FujiFilm X-T2 + XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR @ 31.1 mm, f/5.6I had booked us in the Sunset Room, a room with a private first-floor entrance and stairway, and a lake facing view so we could enjoy the sunset. The Sunset room is a 2-bedroom suite with a private en-suite bathroom located on the second floor. Our room had a large picture window with the best lake view in the Farmhouse, which can be enjoyed from the antique four-poster canopy bed or reading chair. Bhavna loved the linens and pillows.

    Founded in 2015, Grist Iron Brewing Co. is a microbrewery based in Hector, NY, in the heart of the NYS Finger Lakes region.

I was annoyed at how much effort these American adults put into choosing a small flight from a menu of just nine beers. When Bhavna and I were finally able to get the attention of someone at the bar we ordered two flights to sample eight of the nine, along with a BBQ chicken pizza, the Grist Iron “Bomber”, (for me) and a Seneca Simple Salad (Bhavna).Our flights:
    Headless Hessian Pumpkin Ale
    Cream of the Crop Cream Ale
    U-Pick Blueberry Wheat
    Wayward Strawberry Blonde Ale
    Ol’ Buddy Ol’ Pale Ale
    Fippenny Apple Graff
    Lake Life India Pale Ale
    MaXXimus Brown Ale

    GRIST IRON BREWING COMPANY’S OL’ BUDDY OL’ PALE ALE—FujiFilm X-T2 + XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR @ 55 mm, f/5.6We sat outside facing Seneca Lake. It was very windy; moreover, an indication that perhaps the storm was on the way and we would not have the sunset we had anticipated. We talked about how much we regretted not doing trips like these earlier in our marriage and not taking the kids on more vacations to see the USA.The food was brought to the table and we dined and drank al fresco style. We were underwhelmed by the flavours of the ales. I don’t think Bhavna liked any of hers. I made the best of it. We decided that after our extremely late lunch — it was 3:30 PM when we checked into the Inn — we would shower and try another brewery. There are about five breweries in Hector but we decided on Two Goats.

We soon learned that this particular act is a form of entertainment. The dollar bill is pierced with a tack and wrapped in a dollar bit with a quarter. You “win” by getting the toss just right so that the tack sticks to the ceiling. I wonder how many patrons have injured an eye?

    TWO GOATS BREWING’S NEIPA—FujiFilm X-T2 + XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR @ 25.7 mm, f/5.6We ordered a few pints instead of a flight and went outside to enjoy the view. We stood on the deck looking down at Seneca Lake. The picnic-style tables were occupied by other brewery patrons. It was windy and we could clearly see the storm clouds in the distance. We would not have our sunset that night. Bhavna enjoyed the NEIPA.

We learned from the owner, John, that he chose the name after a trip to Belgium with his wife. In German, Flügeschlagen means “unfinished business”. John doesn’t speak Belgian and the word “strange and cool” to him. Floggen Schloggen is how John remembered the word.

From our conversation, it seemed he really enjoyed his work. I had packed a few cans of ales from Flounder Brewing, Conclave Brewing, and the Referend Blendery and I offered them to John. We sat at the bar chatting while drinking. I don’t why I did this. I hope John doesn’t think I’m some sort of nut. I just wanted to share.

We drove to the Walmart in Watkins Glen and picked up some junk food and ramen noodles which we prepared in the Farmhouse kitchen. We would regret that the next day.
