Beer, Comfort Food, and You

Meet BattyBeerBabe!

January 24, 2012 3

How I came to Love Craft Beer I like beer. I’ve always liked beer, maybe long before I should have, but please don’t call the authorities.

The Mango IPA from Springhouse Taproom in Lancaster, PA is quite a unique beer. It boasts a well-balanced flavor of both fruit sweetness and floral hops.
