Last night I go to pour a pint.... but nothing came out of the tap???? A tiny leak in the lid of one of my cornies had drained my tank So this morning I head out to the local fire extinguisher facility for a refill. The guy that works the service bay recognised me and asked why I was back so soon. I told him about the leak as he was hooking up my bottle. A cloud of CO2 snow later and I was ready with credit card in hand. He just handed me the bottle saying, "This one's on the house, Merry Christmas"

I decided to pay him back in the only way I can think of which is by plugging their business here. So if your a kegger in the Cincinnati area, stop by Silco Fire Protection for your bottle fill, they are really fast, competitively priced, and as far as I know, the only place in the city that actually fills your bottle instead of exchanging it.

Another way to thank him would be to bottle up one or two and drop them by

Probably what he was hoping for

That is the route I would take. That was an awfully nice gesture of him.

That's actually pretty cool.

I'd still send the guy a few different beers - you'll be able to brew a new batch with the money you saved there.
