Carboy Junkies 1
Armistice IPA is a recreation of a post WWI IPA from the UK. Due to the cost of the war most beer ingredients were rationed during this time. At 3.8% abv this is a perfect example to show off Marris Otter barley and Kent Goldings hops and beer in general of the time.

Tallulah Brewing Company
Moonlight Mile Raspberry-BlackBerry Wheat on Extra Berries

“Penny a pour”
What is this? State law and ABC regulations do not allow Beer Garden to give “unlimited free samples.” The ticket price gets you admission to the tasting event. Once inside you will be charged $0.01 for each beer sample. We utilize the honor system so you can leave a quarter in one bucket and enjoy 25 samples.
