  1. That's pretty damn cool. We just visited Brooklyn Brewery this summer and were able to try a couple ghost bottles. Quite good and different from the Brooklyn Lager that they are known for.

    These events should be a blast. We just might stick around Nashville for an extra week to check it out.
