Beers of the July FABTS Meeting

I couldn't think of a better way to show our patriotic side than drinking all types of American ales.  We had a great assortment of beers.  Thanks to Kybecca for hosting and donating the Anchor Steam and Coney Island Swordswallower and all the members that donated beers.  (If I missed your donation, let me know.)

I picked out a few of what I thought were the group's favorites during the meeting and put them in an online poll.  So be sure to vote in our July poll prior to our August 9th meeting.
