    As the stranger in a strange land, you are the unfamiliar. Can you be trusted? When the moment comes, will you do the right thing? Whatever your purpose, one days you’ll reflect on your deeds and know the answer. Until then, a sip of this ale – with its complex, earthy character – will remind you to choose wisely and act with kindness. The strange land will never be the same as it was before you passed through.


    The idea for this beer began with our seasonal English Brown Ale, The Familiar. By increasing the overall strength of this beer and barrel aging with a particular Brettanomyces culture we think we’ve created a complex and flavourfully rich beer similar to a Flemish Oud Bruin but with only a hint of sourness. The underlying character is reminiscent of cherries, dried figs, and light chocolate.
