During the summer when the zoo is open late, my co-workers have been hitting up Hamilton's Tavern in Southpark every Wednesday night after work. I normally close on Wednesday's as well, but I would get out a couple of hours earlier than the rest of them, which is why I never joined in on the late night fun. But since it was the last Wednesday of summer hours at work, I decided to partake in the festivities. The bar was dope, very much a dive with EXCELLENT beer.
I'm very into dark beers, I love the coffee flavorness of it. At Hamilton's they had the Russian Imperial Stout. My co-worker told me two of those would give me a sufficient buzz. I thought to myself, two?!?! Yeah right. Plus they served it in this funny goblet looking glass. But to my suprise, he was right. Those bad boys has a 8% alcohol content. If you need a comparison, most yellow fizzy beers have 2% alcohol. At Hamilton's they have the alcohol content written on the menu, they highest one was 16%!!
I loved this place, and I will definitely be frequenting here. I need to move in this area because all the best spots are there. Next stop, Tornado Bar again.
