They have been picking up steam quickly, with the new batch of songs springing from the seasoned songsmith skills and time tested talent of these two friends.

Friday, November 16th: Return of the Russian Imperial Stout

Wednesday, November 21st: Release of the Jarmila
Handcrafted in honor of Leo’s loving mother, a dedicated school teacher and devoted mom with a deep love for delicious chocolate. As a young school boy, Leos would come home to do his homework in the kitchen while his mom made dinner and spoiled him with pieces of chocolate. After Leos had grown, Jarmila would buy all sorts of chocolate, never eating it, but instead saving it for when her youngest came to visit; thus Leos would take home with him ten plus pounds of chocolate at the end of their visits. In tribute to his mother and her beautiful soul, we bring you this rich chocolaty stout with sweet banana notes.
