It’s as if we were both toddlers. We ran into a friend at the Student Prince. We told him that we had gone to Theodore’s for dinner and planned to go to CityStage later, but for now we were at “The Fort” to try a new beer from what will be Springfield’s first craft brewery “White Lion”.
-You guys are amazing!
Amazing!? To walk less than a mile. From a home built in 1871 to a restaurant and bar nicknamed for the city’s first stone house. A house which was used to protect colonists during the raid on Springfield in 1675. On streets where people have walked for almost 400 years.
What’s amazing about walking in Springfield on a Saturday is that more people aren’t doing it. What’s amazing is that White Lion will be Springfield’s first “new” brewery. Cities 1/3 the size have dozens. It can be done here, the question is, will it?
