I had somebody text me the other day to find out if I knew where Newcastle Brown Ale was on tap in Guelph. She referred to me as her “phone a friend” – a reference to the Who Wants to be a Millionaire game show.
It got me to thinking – how do you find out stuff like that in your city. I think Twitter is the answer to the modern “phone a friend”. It certainly casts a wide “friend” net. I tweeted at a local beer guy who got back to me within minutes. Sadly there wasn’t any on tap here in Guelph. But I thought that Mill Street Tankhouse Ale at the Wooly was a close second.
I think I would be okay if somebody tweeted me about where to find a wine. So go ahead – “tweet a friend” @TravisOke
