Village Beatnik

Our crazy Beatnik doesn't dig rules. In this swinging session ale, six mellow malts are jiving with a pair of hep hops, when that cat says "time for tea?" isn't that heresy? No, Daddy-O, it's pure poetry. With just one rule: Keep it cool. 

ABV: 3.5%

This session ale contains the addition of two hop varieties along with an orange, lemon peel and hibiscus flower addition. Married together these citrus and floral notes add a mild tart note that is balanced by a light sweetness from the caramel malt.

Village Beatnik

The Village Beatnik features David Teixeira, courtesy of our employee Eric Daponte. David moved to Canada in 1961 from Portugal to follow his academic interests at the University of Toronto. A scholar at heart, who loved to learn, and push the envelope whenever possible. Throughout the sixties, David could be often found with his nose buried in a book, and now and then, a pint in hand.
