Going Back a Day …
Thursday, October 18

Will County Brewing Company
RELEASE:  Juicesicle – Milkshake IPA

So, did I mention that orange cream “dreamsicle”s are my favorite dessert?  This his the taps yesterday, and I’m hoping to get a little of this today after work.  If you see somebody running with a few kegs out of the building … that just might be me.

Black Horizon
RELEASE:  Moon Ship – Rye Kolsch

Houston, we have a tasty one.  Black Horizon has released their Rye Kolsch, which showcases rye spice, soft caramel, subtle candied fruit.  It has a dry taste, which means it tastes more malty than sweet.
