Fat Dog Update

Really rainy here but we are excited to tell you that people still came in the shop!  In fact, a nice couple just came in and specifically requested to meet us! They even knew our names. How cool is that? From where we sit, I can see a hole on the shelf where two six packs of Fat Dog have sold.  I forgot to tell you that a really nice lady came in the shop and was so excited to see Fat Dog Oatmeal Stout here. She says she is from Adamstown, the home of Stoudts Fat Dog and there is only one other shop around Asheville that has the Fat Dog. She was pretty happy. Us too. Signed Bandit, Shop Dog. 

PS  This is Fat Dog!
