Has it really been four years? … WOW! … time flies when you’re drinking great craft beer!
Thinking back to the earliest days of Jax Brew Bitch, companion and I remember how excited we would get as we would approach Intuition’s taproom door. What new creation awaited us? … what new friendship would we begin? Which spectacular staff member would be serving us?
Guess what? … we STILL get just as excited pondering all those possibilities as we enter Intuition Ale Works today!
