Tickets for Crap Beer Day? You betcha!

Why am I spilling my secret shame? To show that there should be no shame in attending Sunday's 2nd Annual Crap Beer Day at Dusek's Thalia Hall, 1807 S. Allport Street. Besides I've got a pair of tickets to give away.

    Tickets for Crap Beer Day? You Betcha!
    All of you fans of the craft (beer, that is), it is time to own up. There is a cheap, macro brewed crap beer that still has your heart. Maybe it's the beer your Dad let you sip as a teenager so you would be more cool about turning legal.
