Tasting Notes

No two breweries are alike. Although the basic principles of brewing are the same everywhere, the product of the mashtun, the brew kettle and the fermenting vessels depends very much on exactly where it is made.

Large and small breweries, old and new, all of them are capable of making distinctive beer.
