Now, as some have you may have noticed (often with a moderate amount of disappointment), there's a vacant space in our taproom which until recently had been occupied by Pac Man.** This has been a medium bummer for us, so we've been going through our usual procedure to fill that void (waiting around for something to fall from the sky). And thank Hops, the universe has provided! Specifically, it provided in the form of a man we know as Pinball Mitch.*** And if you couldn't guess from his name, Mitch has some pretty intense feelings about pinball (the short version of the story is: he's for it). Now, it might seem a bit peculiar to be so gung-ho about something that can seem sort of frivolous, but we can certainly sympathize, given our own intense/passionate interests.****
Anyway, the long and the short of it is: we got Metallica pinball and holy hell it is so fun!
And speaking of Thanksgiving, we're slingin' pies from Caldwell Confections throughout the holiday season! Order forms (and possibly delicious samples) will be available in the taproom starting this weekend, and we'll have pickup times scheduled right before Thanksgiving and Christmas for you to come grab your tasty treats! We got our grubby little paws on one of these pies, and it lasted maybe two hours in our loving care.
** We don't really need/want to get in to the details; suffice to say he was rather unceremoniously removed from our care.
*** We know him as Pinball Mitch because - so far as we can tell - that's what he calls himself. For all we know, that might be his real name.
**** I am, of course, talking about beer and not our rather prodigious stash of "He-Man Goes to Waffle House" fan fiction.
