You can create a gin & tonic with gin joint, tonic water, and some lime! Use about 65% Gin Joint and 35% Tonic water.


Glassware etiquette: We recommend using any tulip shape glass for all of these beers, and a wine glass for the berry saison. IPA glasses work great for the IPA's. For simplicity, you can use a "teku" for any style of beer, always.
