Taste This! – Behind the Scenes at Immersion Brewing

Chances are, if you think of craft beer, you most likely think of it on tap or in bottles, but canning is one of the hottest trends in the industry right now.

Thanks to the folks at immersion brewing to showing Donna around and to Newport Avenue Market, who gives us the resources to take these weekly culinary adventures. Life is short. Eat good food. And have fun doing it.
