We could all use a little something to keep us going through these grey winter days, and our next release couldn’t be a better highlight to keep us excited! On February 17th, we will be releasing four new beers and hosting a release party for our membership at the tasting room. We dove into our archive this release to bring back some Alesong favorites, worked on an awesome collaboration, and of course brought fruit to the party! Click on any of the photos for more details on each beer and head over to our blog for the backstory on each. Make sure you're to check out our new club options, and become a member of our Blender's Circle if you want to have access to all of them!
