SkippyFoot Peanut Butter WeeFoot Stout: Now on tap at the Pizzeria & Public House (only).

I keep trying to tell you that the leave of absence is serious, and I'm really running for mayor of New Albany, and I don't know what in the hell's going on at work.

Case in point: SkippyFoot (Peanut Butter WeeFoot Stout). I was only vaguely aware of this being in the pipeline, and now it's on tap at the Pizzeria & Public House only. I'm planning on going over there tomorrow to pick up some "pay packet" (pizza and growlers), and will have a taste then.

There will be a report.

NABC's FOOTED STOUT SERIES has been a staple for a while now. I believe these are the ones we've brewed to date, but I may have missed one.

ClovenFoot (seasonal)
