Diner getting attention for its award winning beer

HAYS, Kansas – Gerald Wyman was more surprised than anyone that his business was singled out by the Huffington Post.

“I think it’s terrific to think that they picked us out one of the best things to do in the state of Kansas. They come to Liquid Bread and have a pint of oatmeal stout, I think that is terrific.”
