Rainy days and crafted nights

Here in Illinois, we’ve seen plenty of rainy days the past few weeks, which has led to a copious amount of flooding.

Malty brews are great!

Malty brews are great!

If you’ve had more than four or five different craft beers, you’ve likely run across a few malty brews already.  This is a given because there are so many craft beers on the market that contain copious amounts of malt.  While many are in love with their hoppy IPAs, we have to openly state that malty brews are great!  Sure, we love our hop-filled craft beers too, but there is a space in our hearts that only a great malty brew can fill.
