Announcing our December Beer of the Month, and it's a pretty popular one - Miller Lite. Probably needs no explanation other than DRAFTS are just $2.50 a pint all month long!
We'd also like to welcome the amazing König Ludwig Weissbier to our draft line. From the expert German Brewmasters at Warsteiner, this is a true Royal Bavarian Hefe-Weizen, naturally cloudy Wheat brew, from the expert German Brewmasters at Warsteiner. Barrington is actually a German-founded village, so this beer is a nice addition to our taps.
