KC's Pub rings in 2016 with two sought after IPA's.

Stop into KC's Pub in Guilford and enjoy an Outer Light Brewing Company SUBduction, " a tribute to the "submarine capital of the world". Then ask your bartender to pour a pint of New England Brewing Company's Fuzzy Ducks, a much sought after IPA and only available on a rotating basis. And while you're sitting there, enjoy our famous wings or a pulled pork (smoked) slider!
