Think we missed APR entirely.

With that said, 3rd beer of the TB 15th Anniversary Series has hit shelves.

Itís a Dark Mild.. and I rather enjoyed it. At 3.2%, it certainly gives some flavor.

Think they are e-tickets, no? Whole group has to be there to enter.. person who ordered them needs his whole group at entry from what my confirm emails say..

At first glance.. Sun King pulled in several awards.. Revo finally getting some well earned recognition. King Henry confirmed as an amazing beer by raters and judges alike!
