Thanks For Reading

Well…. this is very unexpected and unfortunate news to wake up to this morning. Hopefully the updates will be better and things will come out better. Hoping that there continues to be no injuries and very little building damage. Funk Brewing is a great brewery and a great spot to visit. I love stopping in there when in the E-Town area. (Even done a few beer reviews from there.)

Please stop back for updates.

Reminder – tomorrow is the Boneshire Brew Works 6th celebration that we’ll be stopping out at, come out and visit. As well as game one of the Phillies – Astros World Series. Fingers crossed for our Phightin Phillies.
