A week has flown by since my review of the Beard & Sabre Bubbly Shipment review and it’s time for another review for you guys. Maybe I’ll make it a regular Thursday thing? We shall see how life treats me, but it could well be a regular occurrence. Up next in my cider/perry journey I thought I’d go across Europe to Austria and try some of their perry that I completely forgot I had any left on my cider shelf. Tonight I shall be trying some of the Preh perry from Mostbaron Gourmetmost.
