Beet beer is back by popular demand! 

Yes, beets.  The Taste of the IRC will again feature a special craft beer made with beets.   The beets were harvested on September 18 by a refugee farmer at the IRC Community Garden in City Heights. 

They will soon be delivered to BNS Brewing and Distilling in Santee.
