I will try it when I see it. But from past experience with their beer, I find it very difficult to say they would be best in America in any style....
In all honesty, no I have not. I'm not really into the style. I have had many of their beers and for quite a few years. I live about 30 minutes...
Cape May makes some solid beer. Not great, but good. Best in America....please
When did we start getting Westbrook in NJ?
It has a ceramic screw top also. I opened a 2011 for a friends 50th and we drank it on our birthdays for 2 years. I couldn't taste oxidation
Spanish Peaks/Black Dog Ales. My first craft beer. I've come a long way

I didn't consider that. Thanks for the heads up. Makes total sense
Going to scrub and sanitize the bung only
