Howdy beer friends, These dog days of summer aren’t so bad with mild weather and incredibly cool evenings. Makes the pumpkin beers on the shelf not seem so intrusive….or not.

I love crowlers. This beer has been sitting in my fridge for exactly a week and it poured with a great head and excellent aroma, as if they filled it today. While I’ve enjoyed growlers – and I still keep a few on hand – the fact that you can purge a can with CO2, […]
