Welcome to March… also known as month 4 of the worst winter we can remember seeing in 15 years! Ain’t it grand? March marks the release of one of our most sought after seasonal beers–400 Divine Rabbits. If you haven’t gotten to the taproom or picked up a 6 pack at your local liquor store, what are you waiting for? It’s hard not to love this light, dry and delicious agave nectar wheat ale, so give it a whirl.
This month is crazy jam-packed with events, so let’s just say, hooray! Winter Beer Fest was awesome! And on with the show… read below to see all the places we’ll be this month and join us where you can!
