FRIDAY
It's nice hearing that Prohibition Taproom is doing so well. I have always had a nice meals and memories of the 13th and Buttonwood bar. This Friday 6:30- we'll be tapping a firkin of "Jakes ESB" from Sly Fox. Come by!

SATURDAY
As I've already mentioned- It's National Train Day and it's Sly Dog Gang day.  Join Wendy of DFH, Megan of Ommegang and myself for a few hours.  Some great stashed gems will hit the taps 6 till ?

If you're in the Pottstown area- Frank Smith Beverage is doing their Bottle Swap. They only do this twice a year- so hit it up if you're out that way.
