COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Twas a sunny morn in min-2012 when we first laid our eyes upon the man - nay the myth! - sweet sweet Kissmeyer. Our hearts aflutter, filled with excitement and trepidation. We embarked on the journey of a lifetime to produce this here (N.B. Find better word for "whopper) of a beer. Some people say this mighty ale is so complex that complexity is not complex enough an adjective to describe it. Those people are us. Aged in ex-shiraz and pinot barrels for a rather long time
