Christmas Weekend Beer Schedule, December 24-26

Christmas Weekend Beer Schedule, December 24-26
Guinness Christmas ad 1950

I’m further tied up with many tasks, so this is a day late again.

I had been preparing to put up a list of Christmas weekend hours for all the establishments that posted to my Facebook feed, but that list became unmanageable. And some of the places that had to close down for COVID exposure among there staff have sounded the “all clear” and are back in operation. I’ll try to append more info as it becomes available. In the meantime, check ahead to any place you might be thinking of visiting this weekend.

I am continuing to work on my New year’s Eve (and Day) events, viewable on my fledgling Calendar App.
