[This past Tuesday's] Tap It Tuesday Live from the Barrel series at 6pm is Spiced Red Apple. This Northwest sour style triple ale was barrel aged for 16 months in French oak.

Strawberry and Figaro bottles are coming along nicely and will be here before you know it – however, we don’t have an exact date yet. When we do, you’ll be the first to know! Apricot is tasting amazing as well, and the bottles will be here in late June.
