New Boswell of Richmond and owner Rodwick Landess came over to Batesville tell the assemblage about the beers. Since it was still morning and a lot of mile to travel, he was no doubt a little disappointed to end up serving as a bartender.
Oh, by the way, New Boswell will soon be moving a few doors down to if not more spacious at least stronger-floored quarters and they will be going into an agreement with the Ghyslain chocolateers and high-end restaurant.
A short drive to Great Crescent earned the group samples and a factory tour of the brewery by Dan Valas.
Great Crescent now has a third-Saturday of the month "Rhythm, Bites, and Blues" that includes dinner, some drink tickets, etc. for $35. They've been full up since starting this monthly party. Next month (May) will feature two different dry-hopped American IPAs.
Oh, Great Crescent's beers are on draft now at the Rising Sun Casino.
The car folks got some T-shirts, growlers, cozies, and other stuff. Then we moved on to drive some of the winding back (paved) roads in Swiss County.

In Madison, I spotted on Main St. "Just Brew It' and a sign saying "homebrew". Couldn't get my driver to stop though so had to look this one up in the Madison Courier. - article
Getting to New Albanian two hours behind schedule, we flustered the waitress staff even though there were only ten people left of the tour by that time. The seven who did stay mostly had the NABC Tafelbier and pizza. Left there a bit after 10pm. The stop in Columbus was cancelled and a full day ended back home just 'round midnight.
