*Warning Sign Eis Bock : "The Earth Saving Beer!" This is quite a mystical beer that is brewed each year specifically for this event. The first batch was homebrewed in a local garage, and we change the site of the host brewer annually. This year's batch was brewed in Castlerock at Rockyard. Led by host brewer, Jim Stinson, and the versatile brewing group known as the "Good Ol' Boys," this traditional lager was prepared in a team brewed fashion. Being the strongest style of lager in the world, the 11.0% Warning Sign has a reputation for doing wonderful things with shirts, causing loss of memory, and inspiring spontaneous Axle Rose dancing! We recommend serving it with beef stew in a bread bowl.
