Mai Tai

Mermaid’s Brew (in Back)

After that one, we decided to stick with a mai tai… or two.

Without a doubt, this is the best […]

Innis & Gunn

Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer

The depth and complexity of oak is mellowed by the sweet vanilla, burnt sugar and hints of rum.

We both loved it. But, there’s more than a touch of sweetness to this beer.
