I get the apostrophe joke but “Polygamy Porter” was more intriguing to me. A real claim-to-fame!
Oh dear, I don’t get this one. Don’t these ales belong to Microbrew ? Hence wouldn’t Microbrew be possessive ?
BTW I think “Polygamy Porter” is a marvellous name for a brew.
Can you email me to explain.

@Sybil microbrews is not possessive in this case because all the listed ales are microbrews. It’s like saying, “Here are the menu items for the day:” followed by a list of meals. “Items” wouldn’t be possessive.
