From Cosmos to Craft: changing womens mind about beer

So you want your wife/fiancee/girlfriend/the lovely lady in your life to drink craft beer? Well gentlemen, this is no easy task.

5 “Common” Craft Beers to Drink Before You Die..

So this is the first of many article I hope to write for the site exclusively. I wanted to compile a list of beers that are fairly easy to get that I think everyone should try at least once. All of the beers on this list are available year round and 4 out of the 5 should be available through out the country.
