Now I love drinking for a good cause, but I'm also bringing down three of my latest brews to get some feedback from the public:
Walker's Chocolate Stout - a dark, roasty stout brewed with cocoa powder
Oregano Hoptoberfest - a smoky pale ale with a heavy dose of oregano - won 2nd Place in the Spice, Herb, Vegetable Beer Category at the Virginia Beer Blitz!
