Newsletter 36: TAPS Fish House & Brewery

Posted in Newsletters on March 25, 2013 by becca

We stepped out of our comfort zone and into the wonderful world of beer and boy was it tasty!! A huge thanks to the entire crew at TAPS Fish House & Brewery for expertly hosting such a fun and informative meeting. We were able to sample their Cream Ale, Saison, IPA and the Hillbilly (a not yet released, barrel aged in Angel’s Envy Barrels)! Brewmaster Victor Novak guided us through the styles of beer and the process of brewing and we even got a sneak peak of the brewery!Brewmaster Victor Novak
