Stateside Debut.

We just wanted to thank everyone that came out over the weekend to Max's 6th Annual Belgian Fest and helping us drain the 3 inaugural casks of Stateside Saison. In fact on Friday we were one of the only beers to run out and the 2 casks on Saturday were gone by mid-day!

The response was tremendous and we can't wait for the official Mid-Atlantic launch of the product starting mid to late March.
