The Craft Beer Taster Hunt Continues...

It turns out that trying to recruit people over the summer months is rather tricky! Holidays must be for people who don't have hundreds of beers to be tasting! I've shared the photo of the beers on our social media before, but as the deadline for applicants approaches, I thought I'd share it again with the information the hopeful tasters were given.   After soaking 40 cans in the bath and painstakingly removing each label (with 1 manicure required after), these cans were shipped off to our 10 finalists at the end of July.   These were their instructions:  ...
