Brewery Roundup: Muskellunge Brewing Co.

My girlfriend introduced me to homebrewing in 2009, and I have been playing with the idea of starting a brewing company for several years.

Partnering with a local brewery to produce some larger batches, Shale began the work of building out its production facility.
