Beer Review – Brass Knuckles by Four Strings

Four Strings, a local Columbus brewery, recently started canning their flagship Pale Ale, Brass Knuckles.  Local canned beers are pretty rare around here, so when I visited the Four Strings Brewery last weekend I bought some to bring home for a proper review.  Four Strings partnered with a mobile canning company called Buckeye Canning out of Amherst,...
