  1. The old town alehouse is right by my house. I think I will hit that up tonight. Thanks!

  2. Awesome news about Hot Shotz... Well, except now they're even FURTHER away from me. Oh well.

    Also that tap list is SUPER old. I seriously doubt that's what they have on right now. I'll probably be going up there in the next few days, so I'll post what they have currently.
