Degenerate Discussion

The Beast With No Name sounds like a one night stand that you never want to tell your friends about. However, it happens to be the name of an incredible stout from an amazing brewery. This is a beer you’ll brag about to your friends, which is the opposite of that gal you brought home due to the beer goggles. I feel like I’m probably the hideous one night stand for some girl out there. To her and our Degenerates, I say cheers!
