When Burrows scores, it's free beers all around

  • Print
VANCOUVER -- Alex Burrows is running up quite a tab at the Village Taphouse.

The pub in a well-heeled Vancouver suburb decided it would be a good promotion if it offered patrons a free beer every time the Vancouver Canucks forward scored.

It just so happened that Burrows, whose overtime goal shunted the St. Louis Blues from the Stanley Cup playoffs Tuesday, is the favourite player of pub manager Trevor St. James. The goal was Burrows' second of the game.

"He's a small-town guy, he's a pest and he's just fun to watch," St. James said Wednesday in an interview.

The Burrows beer has been changed to the Burrows Shot because of the Canuck forward's recent scoring binge. Pulling 150 pints of draft for each patron was an hour-long chore.
