Look at any online trade forum and you’ll find hundreds of stouts that people are "in search of," but those who are looking for a world class stout don’t need to look that hard or that far.
It's that time again! Best of 2015 - Quarter 3 runs from July to the end of September, and includes beers that we have had for the very first time only.

We visit Flossmoor Station Brewing Company and talk with Eymard Freire, the brewmaster that's bringing the award winning brewery into the future and back into the spotlight.
