I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday.

There was a great response to the Mad Elf Gift Pack Giveaway, and I'm proud to announce the random winner of the Mad Elf glass and 22 oz Mad Elf is Dan Christ!

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!

Check back on Monday for a special giveaway for the upcoming Tony Award-winning musical, Spring Awakening, which will run at Hershey Theatre next month.
