Vanilla Option #2 by Rock Bridge Brewing

NOTE: This is another installment of my Shelfie series. However, this Shelfie beer is on shelves in Missouri. A recent beer trade for some Calusa haze netted this beer. My buddy, Niles threw this one in, and he knows me well. I do love vanilla in my stouts, when it’s done well. How well is […]
