    Budweiser is the new Blatz! Interesting.

  2. Merriane:

    Had lots of good times at 2B’s. Met lots of great people!!

  3. Lora:

    I used to work with a guy named Bill Church that had once worked at Two Brothers.

  4. Ellen:

    What’s most amazing is that 40 years later, it’s still the same business. Other than the post-2007 facelift, not much has changed. Still a good place to hang out!

  5. KEB:

    this is such a great place – and Daci is the best bartender….

    BACK IN THE 60’S WHEN I WAS AT SJC- BEFORE I WAS ACTUALLY 21 – WE ALL CAME TO TO TWO BRS FOR A COLD BUD. I REMEMBER AT THAT TIME A MAN NAMED “WALLY” WAS EITHER THE MANAGER OR THE OWNER – GREAT GUY.

    THIS ENTIRE SITE HAS BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES I CAN’T EXPLAIN HOW I FELT. IT’S BEEN SINCE THE 70’S SINCE I BEEN THERE AND I THINK OF THE TOWN AND FRIENDS OFTEN.

    RUSS-PLEASE KEEP THIS SITE UP FOR ALL OF US THAT ARE A LONG WAY AWAY FROM SPRINGFIELD.

    ONE COMMENT ON THE PHOTO OF 11TH AND SOUTH GRAND – YOU DID NOT SHOW THE MAIN ATTRACTION – BOOKER’S TAVERN ON TH OTHER CORNER.

  7. Great website!! My husband took me to Two Brothers on our first date in l956. Wally was there at that time. Great guy.

  8. Mark Saladino:

    I worked on the yard crew at the Capital complex several summers during my college years (1979, 1980). Any time we needed to find our supervisor we would walk down to 2 brothers and there he would be found.

    You used to get a large fishbowl drink for free on your birthday. Do they still do that?

  9. Charles Robson:

    They always gave you back your change in $2 bills , everyone always knew where you had been the night before. This was in the 60s.

  10. Pat:

    I too had many, many great times at 2B’s!! Friday night wasn’t Friday night if I wasn’t there!!

  11. Pat:

    I too had many, many great times at 2B’s!! Friday night wasn’t Friday night if I wasn’t there!! Actually, Wally just passed away in the last year or two. He was the greatest!!

  12. Mindy:

    My old stomping ground! Wally was a great guy.

  13. Margaret:

    A fun place, My Daughter Marjie, was the greatest little bartender there ever was, she was there 12 years and her boss Gary was the greatest. I had never met Wally, but Marjie said he was a wonderful guy.
