We’re a few weeks into the New Year so it’s just about time to give up on those resolutions and start enjoying ourselves again, right?!  Just kidding, we know none of our community would ever do something so ill-advised as to give up beer… Nonetheless, we’ve got just the thing to help brighten up these cold dark winter months: another beer release!  Click on any of the photos for more details on each beer and head over to our blog for the backstory on each.  And make sure you're on the mailing list if you want to have access to all of them!  February 11th is the official release at our tasting room, so mark your calendars!
