Brigids is a pretty under appreciated place but is really has the feeling of a Belgian cafe. Good beer, good food.

Thanks everyone for the additional comments about upcoming events.

Anon, a bit off the topic of the thread here, but the general idea for the future of "What's On Tap" is that I will continue to post lists from Flying Pig, Teresa's Next Door, and The Drafting Room whenever I pop up at either of them.

The "master list" of establishments for the region? It will depend upon how interested the bars/brewpubs are in participating in its ongoing success. The survey feedback that I received showed that there is at least a moderate amount of interest from consumers to see this information on a somewhat regular basis.

I'll have more to say on this in the near future.
