We can’t say exactly what you’ll find here but it will include all the news from the brewhouse and what we are up to along with plenty of observations and stories from the wider world of beer and our assorted brew buddies. There will also be a bit about what makes us tick; stuff like beards (because we have a lot of them), tattoos (likewise) and music, as well as inspirations from all sorts of places. We may well also take a look at counter culture and styles, renegades through history, custom rides, and give you links to our friends who are of a free spirited mind like us.  Who knows?!
