So for your drinking pleasure, I present to you an Ultimate 6er sure to bring great craic.

February 14, 2014 |

Belgian Style Ale

IBU: 7 / 17

ABV: 10.9% / 11.2%

Beer brings people together.

October 4, 2013 |

Well, Congress has done it again: managed to completely frak up everything. And this time, they have managed to shut down almost the entire government (yes, that thing they are supposed to keep running).
