The Dukes Of Ale club will be back with plenty of fun beers, ciders and meads.  The Coconut-Pecan-Vanilla English Brown is back by popular demand, as well as Spice and Multi-Fruit Wild-Fermented Ciders, and Specialty Meads! We'll also have experienced club members to talk to, as well as homebrewing science & demos. Come by early, as we usually tap out some kegs pretty fast!!
