We believe in using ingredients only when they make sense to the overall experience we are trying to share, regardless of style guidelines or popular trends.  Above all, we require our brews to be balanced.  When you are spending your hard-earned money on a pint you shouldn't have to fight through a rough spot in the flavor profile to get to the good part.  It should all be the good part.
