Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - January - Hoppy, Hoppy New Year!

Good people of the League! Happy, Happy New Year’s! Yes, 2019 is upon us and to say that
we are excited about this one is an understatement. Do you want to know why? We’ll tell you
why, because we’ve put together the most epic list of New Year’s resolutions ever! No seriously,
wait, don’t roll your eyes at us. Okay fine, we know that most resolutions don’t last longer than it
takes to smash a six pack but just hear us out. The secret to resolutions is consistency and
that’s why at the League of Beers, we’ve had the same New Year’s resolutions for the past six
years.

We’ve got a cracker line up to kick things off this year so dive in and let us know what you think.
The mixed case has got a little bit of everything so be sure to share your favourites on Twitter,
Instagram and Facebook @TastingLeague. And lastly, If you think you’ve got what it takes to
grab the reins for a social media month then let us know. Not only will you get paid in beer for
the month, but you’ll also join the legendary ranks of past @TastingLeague Captains. Until next
month, cheers and here’s to a Happy New Year’s full of great craft beers!
