TBR 67 – The Fox Pub Peoria


In celebration of the Peoria Craft Beer Week, we get with Matt Rixner of the Fox Pub to talk about this weeks event. CHUD was bumped in lieu of brother CHUMP (Who has been absent since episode 6) to join in with us.  Rob the viking also stepped in to make sure we never had an empty glass!

Are we a bit subdued?  Yeah, probably so.  We wanted to keep it focused on The Fox and this weekends beer event.  We didn’t want to get off on some TBR tangent!  Plus, we knew that scaring Matt on the first remote at the bar would be bad for future business!
