My son the beer guy is here today. He recognized about 1/3 of the taps.

Nothing that really excited him, and some multiple taps from the same, not top 
notch, breweries. Of course, he's in the 
business. He just finished the designs for the new taps for the brewery he is 
designing for.

I'm sure I'd be happy there. :-)

OTOH, this is a far less interesting looking image, but the beer is Pliny the 
Elder, a legendary US beer only available 
in a small area near the brewery. The are so fussy about freshness that they 
check if a keg hasn't been returned 
promptly and will come and remove it if it is no longer fresh. 

I sent an iPhone pic of this glass to above son. His reply was that he was 
drinking the same brew at home with his 
dinner - bottled that day! :-)

The HopMonk Tavern, where I drank this, has 17 local artisan brews on tap, 16 
fresh, one intentionally cask conditioned 
(and served at 55 deg.) Only 108 bottled brews listed. 

But how much do these numbers mean? If there are fabulous, fresh examples of 
all major styles on tap, pl;us a couple of 
real specials, what more does one need? :-)

By some mysterious alchemy, our return from a short camping trip brought us to 
the same place at the same time a week 
later. ;-)    A second glass confirmed that Pliny the Elder deserves it rep. -  
a very, very fine beer! We'll be back. 
Oh, and the food is good, too.
