This weekend was pretty low key. We were able to swing by Naked City Taphouse for their 2nd Anniversary Party. They had so many of their own beers on tap, it was hard to choose. I ended up getting the Tay Yay Barrel Aged Sour- so good. We ended the night with an Imperial IPA homebrew. But now for your week in beer.
