The Star Ledger’s beer days til Christmas

Pete spoke to me a few year ago about doing something beer related when I was on the Munchmobile but that never happened.  I’m glad that he’s able to do some beer work now.  A few weeks back The Star Ledger visited Copper Mine and now they’re profiling some beers on NJ.com.  Glad to read their reviews, but I enjoy Hoptopia and Simply Beer’s reviews better.
