This February, at the Craft Beer Exchange, you can try Blue Moon Valencia Amber Ale in a 64oz growler bottle for just $7.99.

This Limited Specialty Release beer is perfectly balanced with roasted malts, Valencia orange peel, and a touch of wheat. Poured into a pint glass, you’ll see a light beige head and the classic amber color.
