Last night I accepted bitcoin for beer!

I work at a brewery as a bartender. We were the first brewery in America to accept Bitcoin. We started in December of 2013. We got a lot of press because of it. The brewery is called Philadelphia Brewing Company. We had a ton of people come in with Bitcoin when we first started accepting it but it has been a long time since the last time.We got a new P.O.S since then and haven’t set up any way to receive bitcoin. Last night however, someone came in who remembered all the hype and asked me if he could pay with Bitcoin. Said it was on “his bucket list”. I told him he was in luck. I had him send it to me and I just paid cash into the register.After the transaction, which we were both pretty amped about as I’ve never received crypto in the wild and he had never sent it, I told my boss what happened and he immediately told me I was in charge of making sure we can accept Bitcoin going forward.That’s how adoption works in the real world.
