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.

I think this is a great idea, and I would jump all over it if the minimum balance was lower.

Generally I feel like Maine is overpriced.  Their beers are pretty good but I haven't found any of them to be amazing.

I agree that it's great that the NHL wants to be the place to go for all NHL stats, but what was the point of changing the names of the stats? That's just confusing imo, but maybe it's a legal issue where they needed a reason to say it's proprietary.

I've always thought that the thing keeping these stats from being more widely used is the names of them.  If you need to look up the definition of the statistic, it's not going to catch on easily.  It makes it far less confusing because everyone knows what a shot attempt and an unblocked shot attempt are.  Most people have no idea what a Corsi and a Fenwick are.

While we're on the topic of sports bars not having a great selection, another pet peeve of mine is when there are a few craft choices, but the bartenders are not given any description of what they are, or the menu just lists breweries and not the actual beers.  "Sierra Nevada" and "Dogfish Head" are not beers.  Usually at these places you can assume it is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Dogfish Head 60 Minute, but it would be nice if you didn't have to make assumptions.  One bar I went to had a menu that included "Ithaca Beer," so I asked the bartender which beer from Ithaca it is, and his response was, "some dark beer."  I ordered it anyway, turned out it was their apricot wheat beer, which is not dark by any means.
