Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - April: Happy month of fools!

Happy month of fools! Yes, it’s April and we’re kicking things off with a can-do attitude. Why you
may ask? Because cans are the new black, the greatest thing since sliced bread and they are
just so hot right now in the craft beer world. We’ve partnered up with South Africa’s first mobile
canning company, Tiny Keg to bring you better beers in cans and some of them are exclusive to
you, our fans.

If you’re new to our craft beer world then we invite you to join our grizzled veterans online
@TastingLeague every month. Across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram our community chats
about all things beer and share their thoughts on the month’s mixed case selection. Get
involved, get stuck in and here’s to another month of epic craft beer!
