178/826)  Heartland Brewery Chophouse, Times Square West 43rd Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue, Manhattan:  Indiana Pale Ale by Heartland Brewery of New York, U.S.A.:  **;  pleasantly hopped but not overly so;

179/827)  Virgil's Real Barbecue, West 44th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue, Manhattan:  Harpoon IPA by Harpoon Brewing of Massachusetts, U.S.A.:  **;  a very refreshing American style IPA;  hops are balanced by a strong malt backbone;

180/828)  Virgil's:  Sixty Minute IPA by Dogfish Head of Delaware, U.S.A.:  **1/2;  6% abv;  this was in a bottle reading, "The Continually Hopped India Pale Ale";  up front hoppiness, went really well with dinner;

Virgil's is a great place and our waiter, David, took really good care of us.  No one left hungry.

181/829)  Our room at the Double Tree:  Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale by Blue Moon Brewing of Colorado, U.S.A.:  5.6% abv   *1/2;  a blond wheat ale brewed with agave nectar;  instead of the coriander or banana notes that I am accustomed to from a Belgian style wheat beer there is a honeyed sweetness courtesy the agave;

My wife picked these up for me but I am not sure exactly where:

She also took some snaps inside the Heartland:
