In January's Drinking on the Last Frontier, Bill reports on the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board's decision to prohibit anything loosely considered live entertainment from brewery tap rooms, but at least the popular trend of beer dinners can still serve up a good time. This month's beer style is barley wine, of which Kassik's has a three-peat winner.
