Karl was so passionate about the project that he lent his name, face and voice to the enterprise, and until his passing, remained actively involved. Favorites include the Amber Lager, Red Trolley Ale, Woodie Gold and the popular Windansea Wheat Hefeweizen; a rich ale with banana, clove, and vanilla undertones. http://www.karlstrauss.com
