Priming for Dropkick

dsc02517It’s been a long week (or two). Fortunately, some of the hectic-ness was induced by my need to ditch town to hit a Dropkick Murphys show in Des Moines this past Wednesday. Pressed as I was to extract myself from the restaurant in the midst of several other layers of craziness, time stopped when my brother-in-law Matt and I arrived at The Royal Mile to have a beer.

Though we dabbled in a variety of beers, my intent for this stop was a long overdue pint of Fuller’s London Porter. Satisfied, slaked, satiated and delicioused, we departed for the show.

    Now this sounds like a dropkick-ass time. It is hard enought to get Fuller’s London Pride on tap here. So to try a Fuller’s Porter….pure Heaven. I am so jealous.
