Happy Fourth of July

Miscellaneous

Andy Griffith

From everyone here at Mutineer, we hope you have a safe and fun filled Fourth of July with good friends and no shortage of beverages to drink. However, take a cue from Sheriff Andy and be careful out there, especially on the roads tonight. There will be a lot of cops out this evening and a DUI, or worse, isn’t worth it.

Grab some local craft beer, wine, or spirits and let’s celebrate America. And we can hold one up for Sheriff Andy as well, who died a year ago yesterday and what could be more American than Mayberry?

AMERICA.

Cheers,

Team Mutineer
