I thought tonight we’d try a beer flight at The Fox Pub And Cafe. They have an ever-changing selection of beers on tap there, so let’s go see what’s on tap tonight. The good news about The Fox Pub is that it’s about a two minute drive from the MBIP Headquarters. Look...
We've been traveling for about one and a half minutes, just about 30 seconds to go and...
Baboom! Here we are at The Fox Pub And Cafe. The parking lot is jammed, something special must be going on in here tonight.
I love all the neon in the windows.
Wow, I can see the crowd through the front door here. Let's go inside and see what's shaking.
As you can see, the front room is jam-packed and I still don't know what's going on in here...is tomorrow a holiday?
Well, this explains it all, Thursday is Quiz Night here at The Fox Pub and it certainly has quite a following!
Cortney, who's the co-owner of The Fox Pub, along with her husband Matt, presides over The Quiz Night asking the questions and keeping score up here at the front of the room.
I said hi to Cortney and took a shot of the quizzical crowd from the front of the room. The questions were a little too tough for me so I retreated to...
The bar, which is crowded too, but I think I see a seat over there in the middle...a Fox hole front and center!
I snagged the seat and there's a couple of familiar faces, the aforementioned co-owner, Matt and bartender Aaron. i had Aaron choose the beers for tonight's beer flight...
And here he is with the flight making a landing at the bar.
Aaron numbered the beers to correspond with...
The rotating handles list here on this board near the end of the bar. I'm having beers, 5, 4, 3 and 1 off this list.
And here's the taps in person and there's more...
Right over here. The taps change often here and The Fox Pub has a reputation as one of the top craft bars in the Peoria area. Matt and his staff are very knowledgeable and if you're into talking about and discovering new beer, this is the place you should be.
Here's two Fox Pub regulars, Steve and Cory enjoying a couple of beers at the end of the bar. Cheers, guys!
If you're a craft beer fan you definitely need to check out the Abita Tap Takeover a week from today. There's two special flights to taste and the brewery rep will be on hand to talk about the beer. There's other special events happening here too including an Arcadia Firkin with the brewery rep next Tuesday, September 30th and The Pumpkin Brewfest, Saturday, October 11th.
And it wouldn't be an official Fox Pub post without a picture of our friend Kayla!
The Fox Pub's motto is: Eat. Drink. Be English! And this British feeling is celebrated every Saturday during the English Premier League Football season which runs from August to May. During these months The Fox Pub is the only place in town where you can enjoy the English Football action and have an authentic full English breakfast here every Saturday. The breakfast and action begins at nine in the morning every Saturday and I'm going to check this out down the road. Stay tuned for that!
Meanwhile, back at the bar, lamps hang overhead illuminating the area and...
Mr. Beefeater stands at attention up near the ceiling.
One more beer to go and my flight will have flown!
I decided to have one more beer for the road...
Cory suggested I try a can of Sidekick Extra Pale Ale, so I ordered it and here's Aaron pouring it up.
