Here is what’s brewing in Jo’s Beer Corner this week!
“All Brews Eve”
Remember as a kid when you would joke and say, “if you could be anyone, real or fake, who would you be?” For me I always wanted to be a veterinarian. I know, I know… out of all the options I wanted to be a vet. It is even more surprising when you learn I am allergic to all animals.
Well, once a year we are honored with the opportunity to do just that: be whatever or whomever we want. However, most people toss their dreams to the wind and opt for the simpler and less original vampire, witch, warrior, super hero or the like. Unlike these generic costumes our featured brews this week are anything but. I brought you some of our best, most intriguing and fall themed flavors. So stop by and have a taste of one of these fall favorites, after all… a witch may not be able to put a spell on you but I bet a few brews could.
Deschutes Hopzeit Autumn IPA
