My brother was kind enough to bring a cooler full of Berkshire Brewing Company beer, some of my favorite beers that I don't get to drink often as they are only available in New England. Excellent craft beers across the board by the Berkshire folks:
Did lunch at the Brick Store on Thursday where I tried a draft from Decatur's newest brewery, Blue Tarp Brew. Their Bantam Weight Ale is an Irish red ale that features lower alcohol by today's craft beer standards and is an entirely drinkable beer. The sausage and grit cakes below were pretty tasty as was the fried pierogi starter.
