Yeastie Boys Do it Again!

Congratulations to Yeastie Boys on Champion Beer of Asia for 2014 with Pot Kettle Black  following up on their 2012 win! We are, as always, extremely proud to brew for you.

PKB, as it has become affectionately known, is a juxtaposition of beer: fresh and hoppy, yet as black as night and malty rich. The black beer that has converted many a person who was formerly scared of black beer. Also called a “real foodie beer” by pretty much every chef who has ever tried it!
