For this week’s nightcap interview we headed to Philadelphia for a chat with Christopher Mullins Jr. Christopher is one of the owners of McGillin’s Olde Ale House, which threw open its doors the year Lincoln was elected president.

Join us at the bar for a beer and a history lesson as we chat with Christopher.
