Does one need to join a "club" to enter a brewpub in SLC?

OK, off track here (but blame it on Strand) -
in the mid nineties I dated a woman who has/had a gay step brother who lived in NYC.  On one visit, we, together with her step brother and his partner, went to THE gay nightclub of that time in the city.  What an experience!  We got lots of stares (she for being only one of 3 women there on a busy Sat night and I for not letting go of her hand the entire time we were there).  I do not think I am ever going to see so much leather attire at one place ever again!

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Now that it has gotten warmer outdoors, I am enjoying Back Bay IPA form Beer Works Brewery in Lowell, MA.  Very nice, well suited to the warmer wx and I found it totally by chance!  Anyone else tried it?  If so, what do you think?

Great Deal right now at Discount Bev in N. Conway. Flying Dog Snakebite IPA & Atlantic Lager, $13.99 for 4/6 packs, and they let you mix. Cheaper than PBR!

Not sure about Old Peculiar Al, but I have discovered the best place to buy beer.  It's in N. Woodstock on route 3, Wayne's Market.  It's a gas station/mini mart but the best beer selection I've seen in the North County. 

My last find was a beer from Scotland called Skull Splitter.   ::)

If you haven't yet been to "The Good Beer Store", just over the NH/ME line in Fryeburg, you are missing out. I'ld bet money there isn't a place with a bigger selection with 1 hour of the White Mountains.... very extensive...
