Craft Brew of the Month

The BRU Crew loves Craft Brews. Say it 5 times fast an read about this month’s BRU featured brews from Shipyard & Sea Dog here!
It may or may not come as a surprise that many of us here at WBRU are Craft Brew enthusiasts. Staff-wide, this varies from those of us who seek out small breweries all over the country to those of us who simply like to look extra cool when ordering at the bar (y’all have seen this, right?). Whatever your preference, WBRU has decided to start sharing some of our favorites with you month after month. But let’s be honest. We’re mostly psyched on the monthly tastings we’ll get to host all over Southern New England. And you should be too. Check out September’s picks from Maine brewery, Shipyard & Sea Dog below!
