What’s On Tap At Holiday Jones?

A couple months ago Holiday Jones got its liquor license and started serving beer. It was the best news we had heard in a long time. Let’s take a look at what’s on tap at the Holiday Jones hostel this month. With each draft option we offer an empanada pairing from our 5411 Empanadas restaurant located in the hostel
