Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - December - Greetings party people!

Greetings party people! The festive season is officially here and we’re feeling especially festive. How festive you ask? Well, we’ve put together a little sumpin’ that we think you’re going to love. It’s the kind of mixed case that comes along only once in a while... The kind that you buy as gifts for your friends but end up keeping for yourself. Sure you could argue that every month this year has been awesome but December’s mix takes the fruitcake. It’s a full line up of all, that’s right, all debut beers and it is the least we can do for our fans.

So for one last time, we invite you to join us online this month @TastingLeague as we say goodbye to 2018 with a cold brew in hand. Enjoy your annual leave and be sure to post pics of your beery adventures. Until next year, from all of us at the League of Beers, cheers!
