Toasting Lion Share at our goodies distribution day

We had a great day on Sunday at the Taproom, celebrating the success of Lion Share and distributing peoples’ gifts and freebies. We now have 270 owners and it was wonderful to meet so many of them. Our thanks to everyone who came, and to the Almond Thief bakery for the nibbles.
