Home Brew

Owned and Opperated by Chance Savva
Home Brew has been around for many years and has changed hands many times. There are many many stories on how new owners came about. The story on how the current bar owner, Chance Savva, came to acquire the tavern goes as such: Chance was traveling across country from Kansas to Canada for a “walk about”. He stopped for the evening in the small town at the bar for a quick drink and a quick meal. He came in to see the bar tender at a table in an intense game of poker. Chance, having traveled a long ways that day, was more then happy to join in when invited to be the fifth. He drank and ate and laughed and played. The game was odd to him as it never involved money. Odd things were being put to bet; flowers, pieces of paper with scribbles on them, special coins with no value, little things like that. He didn’t also seem to notice how odd the other players were, and how the conversation never fully made sense. Instead he enjoyed his night until his head was light from warmth and wine. Then he got the final hand. It didn’t seem much at first, it was not horrible but not bad. The cards got played and the bar tender smiled. All other players folded, but Chance stayed in. The bar tender looked at him “Then what do you wager traveler?” he asked him. Chance, being in a good mood, joked “I do not carry much, if you win you can take what ever you think has the most value of mine.” The bar tender smile a wicked smile “Very well then, then I will put up this bar… if you win you get this fine establishment, if I win I get what I deem holds the most value to you…”. The cards were dealt, the cards where shown, and Chance won. The room fell in silence as Chance revealed his cards. He laughed thinking the bet was all in jest, but the Bar Tender simple stood up, put on a hat, and handed over a slip of paper. “Home Brew is yours now, may she do better for you then me…” Chance was shocked and didn’t know what to say. As the former bar tender left he shouted to him “Wait? Just for curiosity sake… what would you have taken of mine?”
The man smiled pausing at the door “Stick around in this town longer and you will know exactly what it was…”
