Maybe if Estelle were writing this, we’d hear all about this imaginary Muppet, but you’ll just have to put up with me today and learn about the beer Victory Golden Monkey.

Bishop's Barrel 6

Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel 6


Pumpkin beer in February? Isn’t it a bit late for pumpkin beer? Not when it’s this damn good. On Monday (February 17, 2014), Saint Arnold released Bishop’s Barrel 6, their latest in a series of barrel aged beers.
