Draft Beer Update 

Great Lakes Conway's Irish Ale replaced Sly Fox Seamus Irish Red. One great American style Irish red replacing another. What's not to like? Obviously many do like, since those two Seamuses kicked fast.

Yards Poor Richard's Tavern Spruce replaced Flying Fish Abbey Dubbel. Tavern Spruce isn't a beer you want to drink every day, but every so often, it's a very nice spruce-y treat. Every so often is now, while it lasts.
