Straub's Brewery and the "Eternal Tap..."

Ok, so last weekend we left earlier than planned so that we could make a stop on our way to Punxsutawney. A professor of ours is known for his great stories about the funny events and places of the great state of Pennsylvania. What's amazing is that not only are these stories incredibly hilarious, they are relevant to what we are talking about in class too. Just last week a great story was told about the town of St. Marys, PA and Straub's Brewery which is located there. The brewery actually has what they call an "eternal tap." That's right, 365 days a year, anytime of the day or night, you can stroll over to Straub's brewery and pour yourself a cold one off of the "Eternal Tap." For free! This isn't a "most of the time" tap. Not an "occasional, when we feel like it" tap. No, no, no. This is the "Eternal Tap." That's right, they'll be pouring cold ones off this baby until the second coming! What a great idea... The other part of the story? You'll just have to listen:

It's just so... Beautiful... I can't stop crying. Why can't every city have something this divine.

My Dad grew up in Cleveland, and tells the story of what happened when you went to work in the local brewery. They would tell you that you could drink as much as you wanted. That would usually last only a few shifts, and then you never wanted to drink again.
