Michelle and I stopped by Hillsdale pub for a pint of Dry Irish Stout. The beer was phenomenal, and as luck would have it, a strolling bag-piper stopped by for a few songs. Now 4 feet is not what I would call “optimum listening distance” for bag-pipes, but it was a nice touch, and the piper knew when enough was enough.
Also, a belated congrats to the Hillsdale Brewer Greg Balch for his victory at the Battle of the Belt this year. We enjoy your beer.
