    Old Boy sounds really good as well as the beer mentioned in this contest. Sad to say, as yummy as these beers sound, not only have I never had the chance to try any of these beers, this is the first I’ve heard of this craft brewery. This would be an amazing opertunity to learn about a local brew company as well as sample new local beer.
