We’re very excited to launch our very first Flight Kit. We curated a selection of 12 different fall beers — an even mix of Oktoberfest and Pumpkin beers. It’s a great way to explore the styles without having to spend a bunch of time choosing them all yourself. Each flight kit comes with a code that allows you to visit the Case for Beer website and read about each of the beers we selected. It links to their Beer Advocate profiles as well as a little write up of each beer and why we chose it. The kits are $40 while supplies last and would make a great gift.
Sahara’s Blog #7 is all beer recipes. She built a custom 6 pack that comes with recipes for each beer. Check it out here!
