Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - April - Can you feel it

For the month of April we’ve put together a case with something for everyone. We’ve got the ridiculously good looking new cans from And Union. We’ve got three first time beers from Zwakala, Poison City, and Citizen. Then to top it off we’ve got two old favourites with the Belgian Seef and Riot’s Session. One thing to note: if you’re a monthly six pack subscriber then you’ll receive either the And Union lager or weiss depending on your luck of the draw.
