  3. Customer Spotlight: Vault Brewing

    By: Paula Polei Like many of my fellow craft beer drinkers, I’m excited about the Craft Brewers Conference in Philly next month. I’ve been to Philly once before, but embarking on the city with craft brewers – it doesn’t get much better than that! For our next Brewery Spotlight, I thought we’d pay homage to “The City of Brotherly Love”...
