What is the actual address of the Brass Tap? I'm trying to plan this out since I'm most likely coming by myself and don't want to get screwed up going to the wrong location.

FYI, complete closed shoes are required to tour the yuengling brewery. Hate to miss the tour over a pair of flip flops. :shock: BTW I have to place a beer order for the cheesesteak & brew feast. How many trailers of beer should I order :?:

I'd consider piping directly from the brewery to the Brass Tap, and using a refrigerated copper 1.5" diameter line with a Taco 0012 bronze circ for constant velocity of 32 feet per second. No need of a 'tempering line' in the fashion of a 'Hartford Loop'. Smitty says that a 'hooka for 8' is also a good idea, along with catheterization facilities for those with 'leaky hoses'. Stoker Scotty will probably set up the 'Anthracite Powered Grand Poohbar Motorhome' right outside the Brass Tap, and he will be the first to take advantage of the Pottsville hospitality, a gallon at a time!!!................

The thought of piping directly from the brewery is very feasible. An old underground brick archway runs through town past the brewery and the Brass Tap. No need for digging and we don't even need a pump, it's all down hill. With the help of some of you guys we can be hooked into the brewery's main vat in just a few days. :up: Times are tough right now so I could only pay you with cheesesteaks & beer. I just need a few good men :!:

Well, my wife and I have come under some financial strain; honestly this is always the casebut this month is already particularly bad. I'm not going into details but lets just say things are not looking good. I'm going to have to back out of the coal meet n greet. As much as I want to go I can't. Things are falling apart in the IOF household and as much as we try to dig ourselves out the walls continue to fall in on us.

So much for the American Peoples Bail Out. F Obama and f the financial institutions.
