Reddish-brown with off-white head. Full-bodied ale with caramel-toffee flavors accentuated by a strong bitter finish. This ale gets better with age and is good up to a year or more.
JOHN BARLEYCORN MUST DIE!
The Legend of John Barleycorn is a metaphor for the life cycle of the much loved cereal grain barley. Tortured and killed again and again, only to be resurrected and consumed by the angry mobs responsible, John Barleycorn was a bold hero to many. “Then let us toast John Barleycorn, each man a glass in hand; and may his great posterity ne’er fail in old Scotland!”
Sometimes life can get a little weird, and we’re forced to dance with glimpses of experiences just outside of our perception. It’s those times that we ponder throwing caution to the wind and embracing such things most often referred to as absurd, if even for but a brief moment of time.
