BeerGuysTV BrewCast-Bad Habit Frut Stripe
Bad Habit Brewing out of St. Joseph, Minnesota, has a reputation of brewing some great beer and coming up with some unique names and lately some very loud labels. While we never judge a beer by its label, there's no question that a label surely attracts us to a beer. This beer seems to change from batch to batch, so you may not find this exact one. With an homage to the fruity gum of yesteryear (or maybe you can still get it), Bad Habit gives this fruit flavored beer a bright label with a...
