Poly's Revenge - Elder Brewing Company

Elder Brewing Company
TAPPED:  Poly’s Revenge – American Pale Ale

I won’t take credit for this line, but I like it so much that I’m going to steal it.  Just like revenge, this beer is best served cold.  That’s actually from Elder’s UnTappd page about Poly’s Revenge.  Solid 5.5% ABV, plus 55 IBU’s.

Flapjack Brewing
EVENT – Oktoberfest (Friday, Saturday and Sunday)
NEW RELEASE:  Bierwynsteiner – Oktoberfest Bier & 16″ giant Bavarian pretzels

Why?  Because life is good.  That’s why.  The other impressive thing is the use of puns in this Beer name … I count three.  Flapjack Brewery … I’m standing and applauding.  Make sure you hit up Flapjack this weekend.
