We already know we are in a beer renaissance. All over the country drakonian laws are being challenged so that we as a nation can enjoy the beers we have finally realized we crave and love. It is time to take up the next stage of our freedom for the beverages of our choice. In…

Random thoughts…

I remember a time in my life (although I was too young to drink… perish the thought) when there weren’t as many breweries as there are now. Actually, this thought comes out a bit prematurely.
