Michael Taylor, 29, technical engineer What brings you out tonight? I live around the corner. I heard this place had opened up. I heard they had some good beers. How does this bar compare to others in the area? I think that the layout is a lot different than the typical bars in this area. The typical bars in the area are clubby, and this more like the kind of bar that you drink at. It's not so much a dance party type of thing. What are you drinking and why? I'm drinking a Sam Adams Winter Lager, because anytime I find Sam Adams, Winter Lager or, particularly, a seasonal beer, I drink that. What's your New Year's resolution? My New Year's resolution is always to be nicer to people. I get accused of being a jerk every once in a while.
