  1. From "Tom" :

    I have noticed some differences in batches of 077xx(o dubs). The cans I got directly from the brewery were considerably better than the ones I had purchased in a store.

  2. From "Mark" :


    Carton does not date their beers . They usually can once a month. They have a mobile canning company do it. Great show!

  3. From "BeerB" :

    I meet these guys at Strong Beer Fest and have to say that the owners are very down to earth. If you have a chance, swing by and meet them on your next trip out east. I believe that they use a mobile canning company to package their beers. Most of their stuff is done is very low volume.

    I recommend that you track down some of their darker beers and their coffee cream ales. They don’t hold to any specific style per se, but they are very enjoyable beers.
