Haha I like the spring and fall but I just can't stand the summer heat. I'd rather be cold any day. It's also not like I'm in school anymore where I could at least justify liking the summer for having no school lol

I'm with you.  There's a reason why summer rhymes with bummer...too hot, sunburn, mosquito bites, other insects in my home, higher electricity bills from using the A/C, no hockey or football, etc.

They aren't at the point where they can be compared to AB-InBev though.  Harpoon is in the business of making good beer, AB-InBev would like nothing more than for craft beer to come to a screeching halt, and they try to get laws passed in pursuit of that goal.  They own some craft breweries now, but if all of craft beer takes a downward turn and their craft breweries fail, they still come out as big winners if cheap swill regains market share.  Harpoon is only craft beer.

I've been to Cloverleaf but I prefer Maloney's, and so does one of my buddies that lives much closer to Cloverleaf.  I haven't had an experience at Maloney's as bad as yours sounds though, but the service does tend to be slow unless you go there for lunch or something when it's empty.  It is expensive too, but I'm interested in hearing what bars you've been to that have better beer lists.

 

I went to Cloverleaf for the Kane tap takeover the past two years.  The service was very slow both times, which I can understand considering it wasn't a normal weekday night, but I would have figured after last year they would have staffed more people, but it was even worse this year.  The place was packed so we had to sit upstairs, and it seemed like an hour would go by between our waiter's trips up to us.  It was so bad that multiple beers we wanted kicked during almost every time we were waiting for him to come back up, whether it be to check on us or to bring us beers we already ordered.  Last year after waiting a long time to get the flights we ordered, our waitress came back with a few of the wrong beers.  I politely pointed out the error to her, and she turned to us and said to us word for word, "Just drink the sh!t."  At least that didn't happen this year so I guess it was an improvement.

 

With that said, they do have a good beer list.  I don't know about #1 in the Northeast, though.  It's about an hour for me too so I usually only go for special events like the Kane tap takeover.
