Title: Tip

If you come into my brewery during tasting room hours and want me to donate a keg and/or bottles and/or swag to your event, consider buying a pint!

Great idea. Side note, when people ask me to go begging for fund raiser freebies I usually run the other way. I hate that

You'd think that would be a given, but evidently not.

Yeah, 20 minutes of my time, would have been probable of he'd bought a pint, most likely if he bought two and definite had he bought three!

That probably would've exceeded my niceness threshold.

Initially when I was behind the bar in our tasting room, this would happen all the time. Plus since we intentionally don't have a phone in the brewery, I would get a TON of cold call sales reps. I was amazed at the people that would come in and try to sell me something for our business who had absolutely no idea how our business worked, what it did, etc.
