    In case you hadn't heard, McGillin's Old Ale House is celebrating their 150th anniversary with a year of drink specials and other events guaranteed to give you a long, satisfied B-U-R-P. (Aaahhh...)

    And on Monday, the big deal is "150 Minutes for 150 Years," a special historical dinner with Tom Kehoe, the founder of Yard's Brewing Company, uwishunu reports.

    According to McGillin's Facebook page, Kehoe will discuss the history of beer, offer tastings (of course!) and tell colorful stories about McGillin's -- including tales about Ma McGillin's ghost and surviving prohibition with very "strong" tea."

    The event begins at 6:30 p.m., but there is a caveat: it's limited to 40 people only. So book your tickets fast!
