Retail Update for 9 December 2023
Clover • Harlan • Three Magic Letters • Double Nelson
This coming week, we will release a new emergence of Clover—an exceptional offering quite close to my heart. When I began my time here over a decade ago, I had a constant compatriot in the old office: a charming, utterly self-assured cat named Clover. She was independent, playful, occasionally subdued, and reflective. Clover was our companion, our guardian of grain, our huntress, and our muse. We did not own Clover; she graced our presence, and we were glad for it.
In her honor, we mindfully blended our favorite barrels of Ann, Art, and Flora, each of which had been aged for between 16 and 27 months—guided by her lingering spirit towards a beer of elegance, grace, and patience. As our Clover often would, this beer took its own path and its own time to become what it is now: an effervescent, refined reflection of both our melancholy for her departure and, most importantly, our joy in traveling with her for a while.
