Iron Fist Brewing (Vista, California) has officially announced that Cheap Suit Brown Ale will serve as the March release in its Small Batch Experiments Series.

Like all releases in the Small Batch Experiments Series, Cheap Suit will be available exclusively in the brewery’s taprooms and will not see distribution. Prost!
