I've been trying out a lot of different beers at Sixteen Tons and it was satisfying to come back to a beer that's been among my favorites for well over ten years: Hammerhead. Not only do I enjoy how Hammerhead tastes, a ton of really good memories are locked up in that beer. They came alive when I took my fist draw on tonight's glass.
