COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not to get too geeky on you, but the name begs for an explanation. Basically, light is widely misunderstood, and can be vied as waves or as particles (depending on how you view it) but, no matter how you look at it, the packets of light are called photons. This beer defers from our usual offerings and is light, fluffy, and on the lower end on alcohol. This will not be a typical blonde, though, as it has a estery-fruity complexity that comes from our unique blend of yeasts. Photon Blonde is a beer anyone can drink!
