What’s on Tap: Ahem, the Birch and Barley ChurchKey Tap List

The elusive Birch and Barley Tap List. So they wouldn’t give us the tap list ahead of time, but then somehow the Washington Post got a copy.

Favorites from the list, Stone Double Bastard on Cask, Obamagang, Gonzo Imperial Porter, Allagash Curieux Bourbon Aged Tripel on Cask….

I quote from them at length below…
