Weekend Brewery/Distillery Update 9/18-9/20

Ok, I've been lazy the past two weeks.  Mostly because I had weekend guys trip that I was prepping for last week and then recovering from this week.  The older I get the longer it takes to feel 100% again after a fun weekend.  It's Friday and I'm finally back to normal.  So here is the skinny on what's happening around town this weekend.  Lots of options for a good time if you are starting to venture out again.  See a spot that I'm not tracking, let me know and I'll add it to the list moving forward.

Check out the Drinking Springs online store and grab a shirt, hat, stickers, or all of the above.  Show us some love and we will repay that this week with 20% off all orders with code- WETBRAINED
