A Toast to Bruce Nichols
Not much to say about Wednesday night other than THANKS to Tom Peters and his Monk's Café and Megan Maguire and her Duvel beer for putting on just the right event last night at Monk's for a nice cross-section of Philadelphia Beer looking to raise a toast to our friend and recently departed Bruce Nichols. It had just the right tone and after Tom decided with a heavy heart against canceling the event, I think it turned out to be just what everyone seemed to need in the early days after the sad news. We wound up the night over at Devil's Den for a cozy wood-burning fire that you could smell from around the corner and some tasty dinner (oh, and a few nice barrel and smoke beers too), which provided for the perfect end to a bittersweet night.
