Blind Leading the Blind #4 – Stouts

8 months. It's taken 8 months to get another Blind Leading the Blind post out. Luckily, this time around, Chasing Ale was the one on the ball, pushing to get everything done.

Unfortunately for … Continue reading Blind Leading the Blind #2 – Pale Lager

I must admit, I've had my fair share, most of which I refuse to share out of pure embarrassment. … Continue reading Blind Leading the Blind #1 – Pale Ale
