ON TAP this week…
Ok, this is my last snow picture of the season because spring may have sprung. I’m wondering how many beer drinkers change their beer with the seasons. Are you thinking about putting away your stronger darks in lieu of a bold saison, hoppy pale, malty amber or another style? If you want, hop on over to our FB PAGE and comment on what you do. Not a lot, but, read on for details about events, releases and news for our local craft beverage scene for the upcoming week in the Northern Nevada region. Cheers!
