Wildcard Brett IPA - 7.0% - 650mL
4th, 2017 - With the peak of summer season almost
upon us, we decided to play a little something special we have been
hiding up our sleeve: Wildcard Brett IPA is a one off seasonal
exclusive brew that has been dealt with a heavy hand of citrus hops,

The beer pours a beautiful golden colour with a finger of pillow

The chief economist for the American Brewers Association gave an engaging talk about the state of craft brewing, chock-full of brain tickling stats and his interpretations of what they mean now and for the future.
