The Beers of June 2016

Welcome to “The Beers of…” At the end of every month I’ll be sharing with you all the new beers I’ve tried that month. I’ll give you a list of what each beer is, some general information on it, and some of my thoughts (assuming I remember what I was thinking in the moment.). Hopefully you’ll find some new things to try and have some suggestions for things I should try as well.
