Just as we were installing the flat panel TVs in Idle Hands, the folks from the Peak Organic Brewery paid us a visit. They are 100% family owned and operated with a strong belief in sustainability. Not a single one didn’t move our microbrew needle but the one that really set our kettle’s off was the Espresso Amber Ale.

REV SAYS – This is the hand grenade of beers; pull the tab, take a sip and wait for the flavor explosion! it will take a few sips to fully appreciate the intense flavors of this beer. With each bottle containing the same amount of caffeine as 1 cup of coffee, this beer surely cures hangovers.
