COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Benedict of Nursia lived in the late 5th to early 6th centuries. Legend has it while living in solitude, he was befriended by a raven that later saved his life. He is most remembered for writing the Rule of St. Benedict that, among other virtues, teaches humility. Inspired by this Rule we humbly offer St. Benedict’s Winter Ale, a hand-crafted ale using generous amounts of dark roasted malts and the finest noble hops for a robust warming flavor.

It just doesn’t make sense it tastes like water mixed with buttery burnt peanut bridle, it has absolutely no focus. Who would be intrigued by this? who would like this? It just doesn’t make sense.
