New Amplified Beers

Triple can release at Miramar and Backstage (downstairs PB) locations R to L = Top to Bottom of the top 3 below. On tap for a limited time…cans may be around a bit longer. A butt-load of coconut and vanilla notes in the Puddin’ but with a hop bitterness. Juice = yummy. The collaboration beer […]
