Notes / Commercial Description:
There was a time when children ran around loose and fearless, getting filthy and being perfectly reckless. Kids kicked the crap out of each other and instantly let it go, they built unsafe structures to call their own and lived far more free of the burden of being broken. At some point helmets took over, little hands made cel phone calls to check in and parental reign created a claustrophobic, false sense of safety.

In remembering a time when kids ran wild, we brewed The Hammer, The Bullet, & The Vise. A nutty and soft english brown beer brewed with all German malts to lull your mind.

Served in a willibecher at Firkin.

Here's a tip: don't use all three in conjunction... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear midnight garnet topped by a finger of cream-khaki foam. The nose comprises dark barley, light greens, very light walnut, very light oak, and light grass. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a hint of light, slightly watered-down coffee. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nice sessionable little brew, one that seems to demand to be cask-conditioned.
