It’s almost impossible to imagine the uptown scene without John Thomson. John lives, works, and plays uptown, and can often be found serving up pleasures at Britt’s Pub and Eatery, out for a run, keeping up to his lovely’s dance moves, or slugging down a brew somewhere. We dare you to stump him on any ale trivia, this guy knows his stuff – a beer connoisseur, if you will.
John is an important piece of our uptown personality – a man of few words with a smile to charm your socks off. We raise a glass to him today!
