THE MATHER STEAMSHIP CALI COMMONOnce again, Dawg LB Steve has offered up another medal winning recipe with his version of a California Common. This recipe earned Steve a bronze in the 2015 Son Of Brewzilla home brew competition and is an outstanding example of this style.

This is a great, refreshing beer to enjoy on a hot summer’s day and will quickly find it’s way into your regular brewing rotation.

Check out our other recipes here on the BeerBorg and make sure to visit Steve’s Facebook page, Montucky Brewing.
