Massive Update

So I've been super lazy for the better part of the summer, but I have taken pictures, and keeping track of what we've been drinking. I'm going to make it a point to do better from here on out.

So BT#4 was at Hawthornes in Philadelphia for the Alesmith releaseon April 29th. We were able to grab Alesmith IPA,
Wee Heavy, and Speedway Stout. They also had Pliny the Elder on tap, and let us grab a growler of that to take home.

Beer Thursdays #5 was back at the Moo Bar on May 29th. We opened 16 different beers, crushing our average of 12 a night. Beers included were:
DFH Festina Peche
