It may or may not come as a surprise that many of us 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 just want to look extra cool ordering at the bar (y’all have seen this, right?). Whatever your preference, WBRU wants to share 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 November’s picks from Victory Brewing Company, below!
