Batch 300 by Calusa Brewing

So, I remember drinking Batch 200 last fall after my awesome wife got me a bunch of it when I was still living in Illinois waiting for my house to sell. I really enjoyed that one. So, now I’m in Tampa full-time and getting ready (finally) to start my new career that I’m totally excited […]
