Ah, August—the dog days of summer. We are weeks away from kids going back to school, two months away from raking leaves and, sorry to say, three months away from snow.

Hot Mulled Cider
4 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. nutmeg
½ gallon apple cider

OMNI Brewing Company—open since September 2015—features a special brew almost every month. For the month of March, they will be re-introducing a St. Patty’s Day favorite—Rua.
