Their custom brew, Fresh Start IPA, is a delicious New England style IPA with lots of citrus notes. (It's delicious even for those who don't normally like IPAs.) The special brew will only be available for the month of January. 

A portion of every pint purchased during January will be donated to FANS. Drink some beer for a good cause! Read more here.
Have a great week!
