It was fantastic spending an evening chatting beer with Joe. I hadn’t had the opportunity to have a ton of conversations and this was a good chance to get to know him better and learn about some of his perspectives on running a good pub (clean glassware!), his tastes in beer (time to explore Belgians I suppose) and his thoughts on our local scene. Now I very much want to drop by Mortalis to check them out and I’m always happy to talk about the work that Fifth Frame has been doing out there!
Tap and Mallet is the quintessential beer bar in Rochester and if you haven’t already made a trip out there I highly recommend checking it out and grabbing a pint (or two).
