Ahh, July. A little late on this post, but it got just a bit crazy in the taproom for the Fourth of July (or should I say week of the Fourth of July). Hopefully you all enjoyed your holiday and got all the random ‘MERICA business out of your system. Remember June Brew News when I mentioned our to-go store? Yeah, we’re still steady plugging away at it. Each day a little closer to having a beer garden and bocce ball for your enjoyment so keep on lookin’ forward to that. We’re not always full of Broken Promises, but when we are it’s in bottle form. Yeah, that’s right we’ve finally captured the deliciousness that is our Wheat IPA with Zythos hops in bottles. Look for a very limited release into distribution beginning the week of July 14th and grab em’ quick. I promise they won’t last long. Until then, here’s what’s up for July events.
