I certainly know about sucking the tap next door. In Lawrence, KS, the Brewery, the only brewery in
Kansas at the time, was The Freestate Brewery. In Kansas, you can not sell beer on Sunday.
Well, the Freestate Brewery checked out the laws. If the beer was brewed on-site, you could sell it
legally on any day of the week.
So Freestate sold gallons from the tap with a special state seal everyday and Sunday. Watching the
bottleing process as you handed over your college style cash was worth the cost alone.
After you filled the bottle, you kept it for the re-fill minus deposit... now that is nice and OGC.
In a college town with 40,000 students, it was needless to say, a hit.
