We’ll be tapping over 20 specialty casks – some traditional favorites, like Oatmeal Milk Stout with mint and vanilla, and Special Ale with chocolate and chillies.. but also SO MANY NEW creations that we’ve never tried before! Tripel Horse with blackberries? IPA with coriander and orange zest? Special Ale with winter spices? BRING IT ON!
