Just in time for the holidays, we brewed a dark, mysterious ale that will warm the cockles of your weary heart. A traditional Wassail brew was a dark ale or mead spiced with ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Our hoppy American brown has a rich caramel and chocolate body, a hoppy bouquet of citrus and pine, and a subtle aroma of Christmas cookie spice. See if you can guess what we spiced it with! It will be on tap for this weekend starting Thursday Dec 18, and if I know all you thirsty Yazooligans, it won't last long. Come down and get a growler or two - I guarantee it will make the present wrapping this weekend more fun!

"The Wassail Song", English traditional, 17th century

Here we come a wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a wandering
So fair to be seen.

Our wassail cup is made
Of the rosemary tree,
And so is your beer
Of the best barley.

Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail too,
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year.
And God send you a happy New Year.
