Craft Beer Tasting Notes: March 8

We’re days away from opening our new store, but we wanted to keep you up to date on all the latest craft beer arrivals in the meantime. We also wanted to reveal that one brand new aspect of our store will be Cook St. Greenery, a flower and plant shop located right inside our new building! Our new store will be open soon, but until the day we throw the doors open at 10 am, we’ll still be serving you from our old location. Stay tuned!
