Banger Burger

Irish pubs are usually a good stop for grub. The Celtic Harp, outside the Saranac Brewery in Utica, is a great choice. They of course serve their hometown's brews on tap, and they make a good burger.
Sarah opted for the beef stew, which had big tender chunks of beef and creamy mashed potatoes.
I went for the Banger Burger, which comes with a grilled banger sausage on top, and cheese of course. The burger was good, but a little overdone. The sausage made up for it, with great flavor. Nice tasty bun, too. Not mushy and not sweet. The grilled onions were a great touch, too. They had Saranac pumpkin ale on tap, and it's one of my favorite pumpkin brews- lots of flavor without weighing you down.

I wouldn't recommend a road trip for the Harp on its own, but if you're visiting the brewery, it's right around the corner, and has a lively clientele. And they make a good burger.

I'm cleaning up a lot of my half-written drafts, so I'll be playing catch-up and firing them off through the holiday season.
