The next Fab Five Friday

If you could walk into a bar and have five beers of your choice on tap, what would they be?

That's this week's Fab Five Friday.

Mmmm ... my mouth is watering at the sight of the cold, frothy cups in this photo.

Think about it: cinco cervesas (That's Spanish!).

I'll list mine in just a few days.
