Yeah, it was a really good time. Much bigger and more organized than most breweries' drinking spots, it was really a full blown bar. Beer was cheap as it should be ($5 12 oz pours of the high abv stuff, plus $3 and $4 pours as well) so I was downing Iniquity and Choklat all night.
We considered going to the game but our babysitter clock was running out at that point. Would have been a good one to go to...
Makers Mark had pretty much committed brand suicide so I'm not surprised. I was a Makers fan and this still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. In the long run it won't affect me too much as there are already several other brands I was wanting to try, and well, bottles generally last me a pretty long time. I don't drink a bottle a week or month, heck usually not even a year as I tend to switch what I'm drinking semi-frequently.
