  1. Avery glass tonight is no longer a chalice, per FS twitter feed.

  2. Thanks for that info, it changes my plans for tonight. I'm not going all the way there for a simple glass. I was there on Monday and asked what glass and beer it was, but got no answers.

  3. i can't believe that actually mattered. what is it with beer geeks watching their money like the merchant of venice? remember when people decided whether or not to go to a bar based on the beer they served not the shape of the free glass? fucking hilarious that this is a collection of adults speaking in honest about their concerns....
    i'd hate to be around when you pick out new tile.

  4. Sorry Anonymous, I'm not responding to that.
    I was the first to try Lew's Arcadia Loch Down Scotch Ale firkin tonight. It is pretty good, especially considering I didn't like it all bottled. And at the $3 including tax Happy Hour price, it was well worth it.
