I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday.
As for the trivia question, Who was Troegs Brewing Company's first draft account?, you guys made a lot of really great guesses.
You remembered McGrath's predecessor, The Pub at 202 Locust, paid homage to the recently lost Scott's Grille, gave a hat tip to the old Dewey's – and a few of you even mentioned a bar I wasn't familiar with, The Belmont, which forced me to do a little research on my own. The Belmont was a bar/restaurant located in Harrisburg where Mitaka now sits. First called the Soft Rock Cafe, it was renovated and renamed The Belmont, a steakhouse. However, it didn't last long – just a mere two years – and in fact closed before Troegs unveiled their patented brews in Harrisburg. So, even I learned something in this contest.
However … no one was able to correctly guess the answer. The venue in question is, in fact, now closed – a piece of the area's nightlife history – but a quite well-known one. Click through for the answer.
The first restaurant to serve Troegs brews on draft was Catalano's/Angelina's. Ah, sweet memories.
Congrats again to Dan!
