The Master of Hoppets talking about Natalie

                It was great to see Peter and the guys from The Master of Hoppets talking about the gorgeous Natalie. I actually think they do a much better job of it than I do. They are drinking bottle 106 . of 284. I do love their thoughts about the old ale style....

Hand Labeled, Signed and Numbered

                                    At last! I know I have been talking about selling some of our beers for a while now (around three years) but this is finally happening. The bottles are being labeled (by me and by hand) then signed and numbered. It made me realize...
