      There is more to life than beer alone, but beer makes those other things even better.

        I picked up because of where it was made and love the logo/label. I tried the pale ale as well, but it was super malty and blah.

      Can you imagine if Ballantine IPA got a foothold in all of those stores that still only sell "macrobrews" ? Convenience FTW!
