Runaround is about accepting that and changing the story. ”
The “Small Fires” Pilsner is a collaboration with the band’s friends at Little Brother Brewery. They chose a Pilsner because they wanted a crispy boy that leaves you feeling refreshed and ready for another. Coming in at 4.20% ABV this beer lets you enjoy the show and not forget the party.
