Beer Sessions Vol VIII - Dad Beers

6/17/2021
Dads have been drinking beer since the beginning of time, most likely cultivating beer in their man caves during the early age of man. Literal caves with a man in them – not the cave with a fridge filled with nitro cream IPAs, darts, and signed, framed jerseys of athletes from the ’80s. The beer they crafted using rock tools, the leaves of a mulberry bush, and wooly mammoth dung has changed a little bit over time but not much. The current version is brewed by a small brewery in America’s...
