Dion's Blog Entries

Bio: Our friend Dion is on a quest. That quest is to try one new beer every single day. Just one. He's been successful in this quest for over 1000 days so far ... and he's still going. He and his family are frequenters of our Lexington establishments and big fans of the food trucks. If you see him out, buy him a beer ... but make sure it's one he hasn't tried yet.
