Not seeing a Beer Summit, Beer Mile or Beer Kayaking....Lani??? The days are getting shorter!

Tri-cities realist

Clydesdales but no free Bud samples, I'm guessing that's a no go for Barry?

Quickly! Comments are disappearing! Meh to the free Bud samples - allegedly made in China! I need to log off before I get busted for making comments on a alleged non-social media site on a beautiful day.
BTW, I'm having a Goose Island 312. Cheers! *clink*
