The first release in our Legendary Series, Brabo’s Cut is a bold, complex Belgian-Style Dark Ale. Brewed with blessed water, it’s rich with notes of brown sugar, figs, and sweet honey, compliments of the local, wildflower honey from our brewer’s family hives. Inspired by how the Belgian city of Antwerp got its name, it tells the story of a Roman soldier named Silvius Brabo, the man who slayed the giant Druon Antigoon. Antigoon guarded a bridge over the river Scheldt, and demanded all travelers pay a toll to cross. If you didn’t have the money, he would chop off your hand. Brabo, growing tired of these antics, decided to repay him in kind by chopping off Antigoon’s own hand, slaying him, and throwing his hand into the river below. Thus the name Antwerp, or Antwerpen (Dutch for "to throw hand"). Today we honor Brabo’s heroism with these spoils of a job well done. A mighty reward that we share with you.
