Nice to see (and HAVE) a Half Full beer on…

Hi guys,

      Just joined the club and bought tickets for the march beer tour. It sounds like a great time. One question I have is how or when do I receive the tickets for the tour. If someone could let me know I would appreciate it. Thanks

Last Minute Valentines Day Gift

Looking for a last minute Valentines Day gift?  Why not give the gift of craft beer!  Nothing says love like a growler of local beer, much better than a standard hand full of flowers.  And you both can snuggle up by the fire and share the growler.  What could be more romantic?

Here's another…

Beer Review: New England Brewing Co. Imperial Stout Trooper
