Mike Kane loves talking about the beer and the brewing process, and the whole operation when you visit is 100% about the beer.
What the heck do you ask guys like Mike Kane? Or any other brewer? Hops, grain? I always feel like an idiot....I'm a home brewerrrrrr. They are so beyond me and my 5 gallon bucket. I love looking, when I was there the yeast was just cooking, pouring out good stuff into a blow off bucket. .
Kane, Carton, Basil Ts, all good but I really enjoyed Harvest Moons Jimmy D's Firehouse Red.
In a week or two I'm doing some travelling and my growler will be with me, ya never know where ya stop at the end of the day.
