A. Yes, Not really, Maybe....sort of.
From nice patron to me:
Please be forewarned that about a dozen of us have rented a party bus for Friday February 17th for an afternoon brewery crawl. We are leaving Schlafly at 1pm for UC, Buffalo, 6 Row, Square One, 4 Hands, and Civil Life. Not ideal for you folks that you are last on the list (due to the 4pm open). It is possible we may be a bit boisterous by then, but many of them will be first timers to Civil Life and are looking forward to the visit.
Thanks for your email.
As far as Friday goes, I would like to offer a great opportunity to your group for us to be one of your earlier stops on the brewery tour. I would be more than happy to open early for your group (anytime between 2 and 4). We have had some unfortunate luck with brewery tour groups (not all of them... but we are hoping to not press our luck any more and therefore "no whammies, no whammies".) It is a great way to see all of the new breweries but with all the new breweries we have found that some people don't seem to be seeing the later stops. In addition, our Civil way to drink encourages moderate consumption of low to moderate a.b.v. beers. We'd enjoy the opportunity to send you slowly on your way to boisterous rather than send boisterous on to boisterous plus. We are also having more parents/families from time to time that are popping in with their kids when they pick up growlers to go or to have a pint and soda/sandwiches with their kids and it has set a nice tone for our little pub. We have also begun to accumulate some really nice chill Friday after work regulars.
My apologies for being unaccommodating/accommodating and of course for being both wishy and washy, but after years behind the bar I like to look for better ways to make all of our nights better.
Cheers and let me know if we can make this work!
Q & A
The following are a list of questions that pop up in my email box and I thought it would be good to show our responses to everyone in case there are more of you out there in the internets that have questions but maybe don’t feel like sending an email. All last names have been omitted, even mine and as always we appreciate your emails and for taking the time to reach out to us.
