Leinenkugel – Summer Shandy

Fort Collins Brewing Company – Rocky Mountain IPA

There is a definite reason I chose this brew out of my “to be reviewed” fridge. It’s been sitting in there lonely for a while, but I think its appropriate to review now. I just came back from one of my summer classes, Alpine Flora, where I climbed to the summits of Mt. Adams and…
