Falling Rock Tap House sets 2009 GABF plans

Falling Rock Tap HouseThe following is a transcript of an email received September 16, 2009 from Chris, owner of the Falling Rock Tap House in downtown Denver, that explains their plans for the week of the Great American Beer Festival. Yours truly will try to get over to the FRTH at least once during GABF week. Save me a seat.

So here's the list that every one's been asking for, sorry about the delay but things have been a bit hectic around here & my phone has been ringing off the hook for a few weeks now.
