That’s Fred on the far right playing the spoons with the Tommy Halloran and friends band at our Grand Opening.
Fred lives close the the brewery and he has popped in from time to time. He was there on our grand opening and jumped in with Tommy Halloran and friends to play the spoons. He and Kathleen come down for a pint on occasion and sometimes bring their dog. He also has a kick ass show on KDHX called Fishin’ with Dynamite and it is definitely worth a listen. It’s on Thursday’s at 10 am and you can catch the last few shows athttp://kdhx.org/play/radio-shows/fishin-with-dynamite
Fred and Kathleen gifted us a little martini shaker man which looks circa 1950 or there abouts on our grand opening and it now sits above the back glass racks next to our chalk board sign listing our beers on tap.
It’s one of those things, I’d find in a pub sitting high on a shelf as my eyes wandered around when I was traveling. I would sit there and wonder why it was there as I drank my beer. Almost everything entered into a great pub has a story behind it or at least I believe it should.
Fred is what South City is about to me. He’s a guy who lives in the music scene and promotes our local artists. He’s quick to strike up a conversation with a bartender and can jump in with any band. He’s got a way about him that makes you realize he is playing his life out to his own song. Some day, I hope you will find him behind the bar serving drinks here.
It has been a great pleasure of late to introduce on this blog some of the things people have brought to us and helped us fill our walls with. It has also helped me a bit because it means I haven’t had to purchase a new item or dig something out of my life to put on the walls. Most importantly, it has allowed the place to become as much yours as it is mine, Dylan’s, Mike’s, Patrick’s, Irene’s and Chris’s.
Cheers to that and I look forward to pouring you a pint or two soon.
Hello earthlings. I have been sent here to open a brewery. I hope you have time over the next year to check in from time to time and see our progress (or lack there of at times).
