Hey guys, the Weekend Beer Buzz has returned with a slightly different approach this time. Rather than blasting you guys with dozens of events every weekend, we’re going to share our very favorite beer releases and beer related events. Think of it as the breweries, tappings and happenings you’d most likely find us hanging out, drinking and supporting.
Don’t forget it’s Stout Month. Head to your nearest Mountain Sun location and take part in this month-long celebration of dark beers.
