Our Loggerhead Porter has been accepted as an entry in the ProAm at the Great American Beer Fest, which will take place in October, 2016. Currently, the Loggerhead Porter is in a 46 degree lager environment at The BoB. We will submit it for judging during the first or second week of September. To say we are excited would be an understatement!
