  1. Something you can/will appreciate: I was at my hometown beer festival this past weekend. Not a beery town (small, rural, college), I struggle when I go home to find any selection (we just drink a lot of Yuengling there). At this beer/food fundraiser, there was one brewpub that brought cask-conditioned ale, and another who brought a portable handpump. Great surprise. I will definitely get to their places (even though it is a bit of a drive) just because of their effort.

  2. Great story, Jay. We'll get the word out one cask at a time. What's the name of the brewpub?
