Craft Beer Tasting Notes: July 6

Every week we post tasting notes from our Friday Staff Tasting, providing you with our take on all the latest craft beer arrivals. This week we received some tasty warm-weather seasonals from the mainland, as well as a couple gorgeous IPAs from Pfriem, whose beers you may have had on tap around town in the last couple years. They are finally bottling and there more offerings on the way! We’re also stoked to have two more from BrewDog in stock.
