ALA Architects of Helsinki, Finland, released a limited-edition craft beer called Revision Cloud Architectural Ale on Sunday.

Helsinki-based ALA Architects, in collaboration with Donut Island Brewing and Hiisi Brewing Company of Finland, released a limited edition craft beer on Sunday (April 30) called Revision Cloud Architectural Ale.
