    Just finished cleaning all my draft equipment...headed out the door now to pick up beer and head to Framingham.

    Left Hand will be pouring:
    Milk Stout Nitro - Fingers crossed as I'm attempting to pour this on Nitro through my jockey box for the 1st time!
    Fade to Black Vol 4
    Good Juju - Seems highly appropriate...Boston needs some Good Juju and it'll be flowing in Framingham today!

    See y'all there!

    If anyone has any contacts with a reporter or blogger, they should invite them to write a story about the event, highlighting all the effort Jack's Abbey, Marshall Wharf, The Tavern and the BA community put into this.

    I've been working on this today with some non-beer publications, most are so inundated with requests right now it's very difficult, but still worth the effort. Hopefully something will come of it

    I think we should use #Beers4Boston as the hashtag - simple and short.

    If you donate $5, I'll let you pet my kitten at a later date. Which may sound insane but I'm pretty sure 1 or 2 BAs have met him in a tasting room.

    any idea if food will be available, i know beer is the main attraction but no food and beer can make a night hazy in the memory and I want to keep on the right side of the breathalyser.

    The Tavern has an awesome burger...Plus they have a section of the menu called "Deep Fried Love" that includes a pound of deep fried bacon, a basket of deep fried pepperoni, bacon wrapped pickles and deep fried bacon wrapped poptarts. "You had me at bacon..."

    Was just about to ask if anyone who's there could give us an idea of what they are charging for prices. If Lunch is $5, everything else must be fairly cheap as well.
