It’s a beer. It’s fruit juice. Well, it’s actually both. Stiegl Radler Grapefruit is available on tap and in cans. Check out some thoughts on this brew.
After a more than two-year hiatus, video reviews are back in production. Well, kinda, anyway. Check out our latest beer review — Muskoka Brewery‘s Mad Tom IPA.
