It’s a cool little store and they had a great selection of hard-to-find beers. While I was there, I picked up a couple beers from Adroit Theory, including Angel’s Trumpet. This is a beer that I have been coveting for a while now so of course I was excited to finally try it. It pours a hazy pale straw color with …
