    You should consider shipping the beer ahead of the wedding party. You will be able to ship a
    bigger quantity and it will have time to settle before being opened. With all of these new TSA
    "rules" of w...

    Recipe looks solid, though my personal preference is to not spice saisons as I'd rather just
