Highland Brewing Company is going big. We’ve long known Highland to bring quality products to the market – solid, reliable, consistent. I will forever be a fan of their Black Mocha Stout – may I never know a day where it cannot be easily found. While staying true to the core, Head Brewer Hollie Stephenson […]

The red and green label of Northern Lights is very familiar to me. While I was introduced to this beer at the long gone Pizza Kitchen, it has also stood as the only logical choice during many trips through the Ronald Reagan International Airport in Washington, DC. I’ve always thought of Northern Lights as a […]

Howdy gang, We’re suckers for barrel aged beer – especially since we’re big fans of bourbon. Barrel aged beers are certainly the rage across beer styles right now so why not have an event to celebrate that pairing? Superfly has done just that. Also note that Studio Brew is mentioned below. While we love each […]
