    Thanks so much for the list! I have this saved on my phone. :)

    From my experience:

    The excellent folks over at Brew Inn are confused about the $.50 pierogies thing… they were super great and offered the deal for me, but I don’t think they do it anymore. Also, their “budget beers” are only $2 during happy hour, rather than $1. Still a GREAT deal, but kinda takes the fun out of arriving with a fist full of a singles.

      Glad you’re finding the list useful!

      The Brew Inn clearly state on their website that they offer $0.50 pierogies every Tuesday. If no longer offering the deal they’ll need to update their website smartish to avoid further disappointment!
      Apologies about the beer. When researching the article they told me that Narragansett (normally $3) is only $1 at Happy Hour…guess they’ve recently changed this. But yes, still a pretty good deal!
