In the “Oops We’re Only Human Department,” we apologize to Out of Bounds Brewing Company in Rocklin for mistakenly referring to their beer selections as “home” brewed in last month’s Foodie Find. It should be noted that Out of Bounds is a production craft brewery directed by a master brewer with over 16 years of production experience. All beers are brewed on site, in their state-of-the-art production craft brewery. For more info, visit outofboundsbrewing.com
