The winter is setting in, the cold is here, but no worries, so is the beer to keep you warm! Come in Thursday, Dec. 4th as we host a Cask Party with a very tasty JL Beer’s brew made just for that purpose, Lil’ Nibbins! This rich and roasty oatmeal stout is dry-nibbed with raw Cacao nibs for 12 days to impart a nice and creamy, dark chocolate flavor. Not only that, but this cask is infused with coffee to enhance the full flavor of the beer! The cask will be tapped at 5pm and will only last as long as the beer does, so be sure to get a taste of this JL Beers exclusive brew!
