Virtual Beer Festival #4: Back 4 Craic

After taking a brief hiatus, we came Back 4 Craic! Throughout a short break, we had some time to think. Too much time, one might say… A thought sprung to mind that couldn’t quite be shaken. Cans are getting serious notions, aren’t they? Yeah, we think so too. So for this festival we decided to celebrate some of the incredible bottled beers being brewed on our beautiful island! An all-bottle virtual beer festival, what could possibly go wrong?
