COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is indeed a full-bodied Strong Ale; a Hybrid between a Porter and a Scottish Ale…
This hearty winter warm ale is named in honor of American poet Henry Longfellow.

I remember the black wharves and the ships, and the sea tides tossing free……. And the beauty and mystery of the ships, and the magic of the sea. –“My Lost Youth”
