This is a nice one. I wish it were a touch drier, but I guess it is a "double" so...

I used to see it on draft more often, but (at least in my area) it's been squeezed out by less local offerings. Although, BP, GSB, and LI are on tap all over. I wonder why Southampton isn't grabbing as many taps as the other locals? (Actually, I do have a few guesses about that.)

Oh, one more thing. This "double" white is getting less doublish over the years. When the Double White was part of Southampton's Reserve Series, the ABV was up at 7.2%.

Donovan, I'd like to hear your thoughts about Southampton's relative absence on local tap lists, either here or in person at W/BOTY! My firsthand knowledge of the LI beer bar scene is limited to my single trip there last year, and I'm very interested in your observations.

As to the lower ABV of the double white, it makes sense to create a slightly lower-alcohol brew for a regular lineup rather than a separate and, I assume, more expensive reserve series. I think a trend in general toward slightly lower alcohol and more sessionable brews in the industry would be welcome and will happen. I tasted my very first 2% ABV beer the other night and heard the bar manager say he couldn't put the ABV up on the wall because "nobody would order it." I think that is changing, but it starts with beer too good to pass up.
