Jack and I (spouses too) recently spent an evening on the RiverWalk in San Antonio, and we were surprise at the dearth of craft offerings in this so called special hub of nightlife.
We finally found a place with some good tap offerings. Then we decided to head over to Pat O’Briens Irish Pub. They had some live music, and a small cover charge, so before pointing up, I asked the bouncer if they had good beer inside.
He asked what I meant by good beer. I inquired I’d they had some Texas craft beers on tap. He said they had NO beer on tap. WHAT! AN IRISH PUB that doesn’t even have Guinness on tap?
So I asked the guy if he could recommend a bar within walking distance (bear in mind, we are no wimps when it comes to walking) and he professed to know nothing about craft beer. Hell, I don’t think he even knew what I meant.
Thank goodness they know beer in Austin!
We would like to thank our friends at Northern Community Radio (KAXE – Grand Rapids, MN) for hosting a tasting at the culmination of their Fall Fundraiser. The Boreal Brewers were proud to help them celebrate the day and offer a little something special to NCR’s supporters.
