Behind The Bar October 2016


Chairman's Reserve RumThe Behind The Bar series will be used to keep tracking of my drinking throughout the month.

    Great Lakes Oktoberfest, Summer Shandy, Goose Island Matilda, Great Lakes Steady Rollin Session IPA

    Genessee x 3, Jack Daniel’s
    Went to the Annex to meet up with some buddies and have a burger. None of my buddies were able to make it and the grill had a grease fire so I couldn’t have a burger. Talk about an epic fail of an evening.

    A couple of Miller Lites for happy hour at the Tap House and then off to the zoo for Boo at the Zoo with the Gerbasis. Had my flask with me which made for a much more enjoyable evening.
