Vintage will be running the prison bus between the downtown location and the brewery, with a stop at Walgreens on the Capitol Square Friday night as well.

  1. Mr.Editor.
    Please include FURTHERMORE BEER in the TIPSY COW event. (Friday the 12th, 5pm-->). "Party crashers" might help our street cred, but we are in fact billed as one of three brewers for the event.

  2. If the distinguished Mr. Madden would so kindly bring his attention to the following: 1) Furthermore is included on the official guide as being at The Tipsy Cow (; 2)this list is a list of taps from Specialty Beverage's brands (of which Furthermore is not one); 3) I sent an email to the distinguished brewer over two weeks ago looking for confirmation of Furthermore's existence at said event and received no response.

    Aran, of course, knows that I'm just joking around with him. I'm perhaps one of his biggest fans.

    So, yeah, everyone, go out to Tipsy Cow tonight and slap Aran on the back of the head for me.
