The Libations and Legions of Untapped 2015

Monday, 25 May 2015 17:20
Photography by Julio César Cedillo I really enjoyed the Untapped Festival in Fort Worth this year. I’d never been before and didn’t know what to expect.

Old Chub NITRO, Oskar Blues, Lyons CO Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy ABV: 8.00% I have to start this review with a disclaimer that Oskar Blues is one of my favorite breweries. But this is mostly due to the fact that they make my favorite beer, Ten FIDY. Old Chub, however, is a nice alternative when you don't want…
