Cereberus Coming November 20th

Cerberus was brewed by Warren, Mike and me, the three-headed-dog that runs Iron Hill Maple Shade.  Mike runs the kitchen, I of course run the brewery, and Warren run’s the whole shebang but spends most of his efforts on the front-of-the-house.  He usually trusts Mike and I enough to manage the portions of the building [...]
