Bat Goddess July Press Room [NH] Shanty Sing (20) July Press Room [NH] Shanty Sing 09 Jul 17

The July Press Room (In Exile) Shanty, Forebitter and Foc's'le Ballad Session is this Saturday -- Saturday, July 15, 2017 in Portsmouth, NH.

Since The Press Room is closed June, July, and August for renovations and then opening under new ownership, we're meeting at Liar's Bench Beer Company, which is an old plumbing supply warehouse behind Washburn's at 459 Islington Street, Portmouth. There's a sign at the entrance to the parking lot (!) and there is additional parking on the street on the other side of Islington.

The NEW HOURS for the sing at this venue will be 2:30 to 5:30 -- three hours instead of four hours.

There's a photo of the space on the home page of the brewery -- Very industrial. Instead of at the long table, we may be at a replacement for the foosball table -- but it's still a good idea for people to bring a folding chair to be on the safe side. We're more likely to need them in this space than last month. But we'll need to make sure the traffic corridor between the kitchen and the bar is kept clear.

Besides beer, they have hot dogs, bratwurst, and other sausage sandwiches plus snacks like popcorn, Mexican street corn, and chips, but I don't think they serve soft drinks and water is available in a small watercooler on a side wall (which ran out last month). You might want to bring a bottle of water...

I've sampled the Bru Ha Ha German Ale and last month I drank the Dry Levee which I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, I've had a relapse of the bronchitis/respiratory malady and am on prednisone, so beer, for the next week and a half, is going to taste like swill. (Or might taste like Coors.)

See you Saturday!
