In Tribute to JB

We pay tribute to a very loyal and inspirational friend of the Raps community. JB demonstrated daily how to be loving as a devoted father and husband to four amazing girls and their equally devoted mother, Crystal. He was a true family man who worked hard and supported his family with all their endeavors. He always made sure his friends who visited his family’s Sturbridge summer home were happy and relaxed, forever hospitable no matter the hour or the weather. Thank you, JB, for hosting us and providing such a fun atmosphere to unwind, and for being a fast friend … Continue reading In Tribute to JB

The MK Experiment

A Q&A with Rapscallion Head Brewer Jonas Noble about the evolving Mk IPA series. What inspired the series?   So my first thought in developing a new IPA was to find a simple way to name/number them while in the development stage. Since we have decided here to keep our beer names short and to the point I went with a term used by manufacturers to number new models. “Mark” is defined as a particular model or type of a vehicle, machine, or device.
