"But, vendors, make it affordable, please."
The local retailers sell beer at a small mark-up, which is fairly reasonable compared to the distribution mark-up. The local guys also carry more varieties of local and general craft beer, which is something Sunoco will never have.
I talked to an employee at a local Sunoco, and he said each station now has a "beer supervisor" who's main job is to keep the growler stations full and fresh. He gets a few more bucks to be trained and in charge, and takes the responsibilities away from other managers. This will make for consistency in quality and, as you said, sanitizing of growler bottles which can grow some unique cultures when left out in the sun. In any case, buy local and support locals whenever possible. But, vendors, make it affordable, please.
"Sunoco and their Craft Brew stations"
Or you could support local businesses that sell these same beers in growler and bottle form. The local guys also do a better job of sanitizing your bottles and keeping their beer lines clean. Just a tip if you prefer buying local and getting better quality.
We were at the Beer Garden. Nice that the sun was not out, as heat and beer do not mix well after a few hours. I found the selections varied, all cold, and we did manage to try 6-7 different brews without becoming comatose. I hope it returns next year. What a great advertising event for Sunoco and their Craft Brew stations. Bet they notice an increase in sales after this event. By the way, if you only want to "try" a certain brew at Sunoco, they usually have the growler varieties in a bottle. Not quite as good as a draft, but gives you a chance to wander through brew forests and try different brands and styles. I know my draft puller's name, now, at my local Sunoco.
Steve Fiore is the man, soooo talented
Hell, even I liked Chai's.
This place would be Club 54 in Toledo. At this pace, with the Matrix style clubs going up, upper K will soon look like Market street. Then we'll be forced to follow the kids to Hipsterborough and live by the "be rich, dress poor" code of coolness. Never really understood why Chais never made it. I liked that place.
I think I've asked you before: may I please join you and your friends for a fun night on the town? I'm innocent, and I like to have a good time. I would look good in all of your pictures.
Erin Perkins articles are all pathetic. Another "big city feel" club....really?! bottle service, come on!! U love the big city, please go back to Ohio missy and spend ur nites behind a velvet rope In Toledo please!
The murals at Holy City Brewing are the work of Sean Williams, a local artist and all-around great dude. Check out his other murals in Avondale (behind Avondale Wine & Cheese) and Park Circle (EVO)
Another bar with a DJ. So original. Does anyone know when Coyote Ugly or Bar Louie is going to come to town and open shop on Upper King?
I wish I could be part of The Scene.
Some of your friends look attractive and seem nice; methinks they could use a little Pronghorn.
" it all felt like a big frat party. We traveled on. As we approached Juanita Greenberg's however, we wished we'd stayed on Columbus street. Drunken multitudes were practically spilling out of the space"
What exactly were you expecting? Wow! People get drunk on weekends and holidays, and other days too! Film at 11!
Mondays hangover was off the charts. As far as the Drivers from TB...1-2 and you're money, 3-4 and the wheels start coming off, 4-5 and you better call mom to pick u up, 6-7 an it's a total dumpster fire from that point forward. Santis had a great crowd as well.
Reecollins, if elected isn't jaded, he's a bitter self-absorbed troll who gets his entertainment by being an asshole
And if elected... Obviously you're jaded... Did Al Parrish steal your doughnut? Crisis Ministries does fine work. Do yourself a favor stop by CM and help serve a meal. Acerbic ranting based on some paranoid fiction going on in your brain helps no one... Except you, you selfish prick.
There are many charities in the Charleston area that ostensibly help down and out people and animals, but to what degree is really difficult to determine. Some say the people who run these places are really living large on the misery of others and at least one is a millionaire who owns multiple properties and whose wife has purchased KY Jelly using the business account (no, that's not kentucky Jelly). The thing these people are really good at is fund raising and smoozing the media. And that is pretty easy because the press is so eager to promote non-religeous "charaties" and successful academians, even those who turn out to be frauds like Albert Parish. Heck, even Fidel Castro was a darling of the media at one time. Once the press is hooked into the legitimacy of a cause, they do immense harm to the public at times, without ever using due dillegence and asking to see the books. But as long as there is free booze and food to be had, you can be sure the press will show up in droves. I am sure none of the above applies to any charity mentioned in this article and that they help (hundreds? thousands? of homeless people every year at a cost of (?) per person.
*stays home* *orders pizza* *pops Xanax™*
I still have no clique. It's so sad.
Nothing like a little high alcohol brew to bring out the best in folks. I had the flu, or I would have been there, as well. And I didn't hear of anyone melting in the rain, so it looks like we beer drinkers are made of the right stuff.
