Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine

Craft Beer and Brewing MagazineCraft Beer & Brewing Magazine Featured Two of Our Beers in “The Malt Is the Message” Spring 2024 Issue. Read what their editors thought:

  • Hungry Are the Damned: “Very subtle breadcrust nose with faint chocolate tones and a bit of tangerine. Slightly astringent, with assertive malt tannins. Lighter bitterness without excessive sweetness.”
    – 90 Points!

  • Apothecary Porter: “Syrupy in the pour with prominent legs that linger on the side of the glass. Deep chocolate aroma with an almost barrel-like boozy coconut note. Sweeter and simpler in the sip, with big milk chocolate and coconut braced by the slightest hint of bitter chocolate.”
    – 87 Points

Birdies & Brews:

Birdies & BrewsWe recently attended Birdies & Brews, a charity golf tournament and beer tasting created to honor the memory of Sherry & David Royall. The mission of Birdies & Brews is simple: to raise money for cancer research while golfing and enjoying a beer with friends- two things Sherry and David Royall enjoyed doing together. We took Tuxedo at a Pool Party German Pilsner, Kolsch, Pōtae NZ Thiolized Hazy IPA, and Squad Deep West Coast IPA. Tuxedo was the crowd favorite but they were all well received. By the end of the tournament, we had only a few Kolsch left!

First and foremost, we want to express our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you who has visited our taproom, shared in our passion for craft beer, and showed your support through voting or just showing up at BBB. Your patronage and enthusiasm are the driving forces behind our relentless pursuit of brewing excellence, and we are profoundly grateful for the trust you have placed in us. Thus, it is with great pleasure that we share these accolades with you, our cherished patrons, whose discerning tastes and unwavering support have been the driving force behind our journey to excellence.
