Strange Brewing Co

Emma Bush drinking Cherry Bomb Stout at Strange Brewing. Half pints of Cherry Bomb and unfiltered Farmhouse Ale. Cherry Bomb wheat stout started out as a mistake, putting the wrong malts into a batch of Belgian Wheat then add tart cherries, the end result is a wonderful tart, sweet, stout.
Strange Brewing now has wi-fi, so cruise the internet while drinking a pint of Cherry Bomb Wheat Stout!
