Let's drink beer on the East Side!

Do you like good beer? I guess with this group, that's a rhetorical question, but this place has a very nice selection of interesting beers. I stopped by to scout it out to make sure it was good enough for our discerning members and was impressed by the tap selection. I had a delicious Speakeasy beer (The Black and White Cookie Stout) which I'd never seen before, and it was awesome. I was also intrigued by the Ballast Black Marlin Porter which was made with chipotle and was very spicy!

They offer flights so you can sample a variety of beers before choosing your favorite. The manager is setting aside a special area for us so we will have plenty of room to hang out and talk about the beers.

Hope to see you at Draught 55!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
