Brewed by Shmaltz Brewing Company
Clifton Park, New York USA
Style: Premium Lager | Ratings: 39 | Summer Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.5%
As a young shepherd, David famously vanquished the giant Goliath with a hand-crafted sling. Our modern anti-hero Bart Simpson clowns through childhood vrith a slingshot. Homer. Caesar. and Thucydides wrote of slings. The IRA. The Incas vs the Conquistadores. Native Americans and Palestinians have all wielded this iconic weapon of the underdog. A low-status tool, ancient slings were rarely preserved in the tombs of the wealthy. Michelangelo’s David embodied resistance and epic beauty in the Renaissance. Slingshots meant merry mischief to Dennis the Menace, Calvin, Woody Woodpecker and the Beverly Hillbillies. A musician and poet, the teenage David rescued his sheep from the mouth of lions. The first to unite the entire nation of Israel. the lineage of the Messiah descends from him. In Samuel 17, rising to the boasts of a mighty enemy, David refused the armor and weapons of the King. instead proclaiming victory. Not by my sword but by my Spirit” David in Hebrew means “Beloved”. I am approaching the age that my dad. David. died when I was a teenager. A lifelong Special Ed teacher and summer Army reservist. he served as both loving mentor and affable prankster a dedicated advocate for the underdog. In Alchemy, the Star of David equals a mystical union of male/female earth/sky leading to nirvana. The 6-pointed Brewers Star blends fire, water, malt, yeast, hops, and the character of the brewer. In the spirit of a slew of Dards & Slingshots. Shmaltz hoists our tribute to the glories of Summer… L’Chaim! Jeremy Cowan, proprietor
